Huffington Post - over 3 years
Actor Manolo Cardona paved a widely successful career for himself in his native Colombia, but the 36-year-old star isn't stopping there. Cardona made his first appearance in the U.S. market with "Beverly Hills Chihuahua," and this summer he found himself alongside actress Piper Perabo once more when he joined the cast of USA Network's spy drama "Covert Affairs."

Colombian Star Crosses Over To 'Covert Affairs'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
By Ikam Acosta You might know telenovela hunk Manolo Cardona from Por Que Diablos? Now, the Colombian cutie will be appearing on USA’s hit crime series, Covert Affairs. Cardona plays Teo Braga, a rebel leader and Colombian extremist with a very complex personality. He says he enjoys finding characters that challenge him, and Teo certainly fits that bill. Manolo feels the most difficult part of crossing over to Hollywood from being on a Colombian telenovela is bringing a broader view of Latinos to the industry. He said, “I think the role of Teo Braga shows how Latinos are starting to have more important roles within shows and movies in the United States. But I think that’s the most difficult part– finding characters that break stereotypes.” Manolo is always looking to play enigmatic and complex characters and feels that the role of his dream is whatever character he is playing at the moment, as he is always striving to put all his energy into his work. Card ...

Dan Lybarger: Film Review: The Snitch Cartel
Huffington Post - over 4 years
For a movie that features drugs, jealousy, betrayal, sex and murder, The Snitch Cartel, Colombia's entry in the race for Best Foreign Language Film at next year's Oscars, offers a tepid rush and some nagging side effects. Despite recounting a volatile era in the Colombian cocaine trade, director Carlos Moreno's take on the aftermath of the battle between the Cali and Medellin cartels after the death of Medellin leader Pablo Escobar features some familiar faces, some adequate action and an odd sense of indifference. The tale begins in the early 1990s when a pair of working class toughs named Martin Gonzales (Manolo Cardona) and Pepe Cadena (Diego Cadavid) think they have arrived. Despite Martin's modest origins in Cali, Martin's friendship with Pepe has made both of them some serious cash thanks to America's demand for cocaine. Pepe's brother is Don Oscar (Fernando Solorzano), a powerful and wealthy drug warlord. It's easy for the two to think that the good life w ...
