We’re very lucky, this week, on Amber Lynn Rock’N’SeXXXy UnCensored, to have special guest actor/producer Emilio Rivera. With many TV and movie roles, you may recognize Emilio as Alvarez, the leader of the Mayan motorcycle club on “Sons of Anarchy.” Or in “Con-Air” as Carlos, with Nicolas Cage – or from roles in other films, including “Bruce Almighty,” “Spiderman 3,” “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” as well as numerous TV roles.
Emilio’s latest project is a movie called “Water and Power,” which he produced alongside veteran Latino actor Edward James Olmos. Just released, the movie is playing in limited release in several south L.A. and Long Beach theaters. Here’s the trailer – check it out:
A tale of crime, politics, family and the Eastside, the movie is described as “Chicano noir,” and shot against the gritty, rich visuals of Los Angeles. Twin brothers – nicknamed “Water” and “Power” by their father, who worked for the DWP – grow up and become entwined in a story that twists and turns dangerously (like Mulholland through the heart of the city).
Then, there’s “Sons of Anarchy.” Since Amber sort of has a thing for bikers, and since she recently had the pleasure of meeting SOA cast members (including Emilio) at the Chiller Theater Expo, we want to talk to him about playing the “bad guy” with a lot of his characters. The villainous roles are always the tastiest. But we know behind all that, Emilio is a good guy – he was nice enough to juggle his schedule to be with us Thursday night. And, on his Facebook, the profile picture is him and a lady we think is probably his mom. With Mother’s Day this week, you gotta love a man that loves his mother.
