Well, I'm not up on my hispanic actors that much, who was that fellow
who starred in the Milagro Beanfield War? He was also the hispanic INS
agent in that chupacabra episode of The X-Files. I think he could pull

Manny is obviously the star, and any 30-something hollywood hunk could
do it, I just think that Ving Rhames doesn't have the hair. Wyoming is a
bit taller than Jolien, IMHO, perhaps Geena Davis or whassername from
Pretty Woman... Just don't cast they guy who played Max Headroom for
