It was a star-studded morning on Despierta America yesterday. Not only did comedy star Will Ferrell drop in with Genesis Rodriguez, he brought Venezuelan singing star “El Puma” along with him!
“El Puma” is actually Genesis’ dad, Jose Luis Rodriguez. A music icon for nearly 40 years, he certainly lightened the mood during Will’s cooking segment.
All three of them were there to promote the new comedy movie Casa de mi Padre. Filmed entirely in Spanish, it’s definitely a bold move for Ferrell, who did not know español before the cameras rolled.
But clearly he and Genesis have some great chemistry (as evidenced by the Despierta segment). They seem to know their way around a kitchen too, cooking up a yummy arepas dish for the audience.
