El Cantante is the dramatic-biography of Puerto Rican salsa pioneer Hector Lavoe. The film follows Lavoe’s (Anthony) passionate relationship with Puchi (Lopez) and his skyrocket to international fame. But even when he has it all, Lavoe is unable to escape the allure of drugs and his personal pain.
Because making movies with the men in her life has done such wonderful things for her career in the past (Gigli, Jersey Girl), Jennifer Lopez’s next movie has her co-starring with Marc Anthony. Say what you want about Ben Affleck, but at least he was an actor rather than a once popular musician.
