Further, the actor also claimed to the paper that he was selected from a list of about 500 Latin American names, which also includes Daniel Gimenez Cacho of "Y tu Mama Tambien" fame.
"I'm really pleased to be chosen to participate in such a huge film, it's a great achievement that the film will feature a Mexican actor," so Cosio said while adding that he is going to shoot his scenes in Panama, Bolivia, and London.
