After acting in the 2002 flick Amar te duele, Alfonso “Poncho” Herrera is making a big-screen return with the new movie Volverte a ver, directed by Gustavo Garzón.

During a press conference in Mexico, the singer, 24, said he’s excited for his new role as the character Pablo, adding that the project won’t interfere with any of his prior commitments with the band.
