WATCH: Gay Biopic ‘Cassandro’ Releases Sexy New Exclusive Clip Featuring Gael Garcia Bernal & Raul Castillo

Cassandro

A new exclusive teaser for the gay wrestling biopic ‘Cassandro’ was released on September 6, Wednesday.

A sexy clip was posted by Prime Video on YouTube featuring Gael Garcia Bernal and Raúl Castillo languishing and conversing on the bed.

The video shows Armendáriz (Bernal) opening up about his persona to Castillo’s character, Gerardo, saying that Cassandro is “daring, fun, and sexy.” Armendáriz also remarks that “he is probably a top.” Gerardo, however, does not care for the focus on the character, telling Armendáriz that he likes him exactly how he is.

Check out the clip below:

‘Cassandro’ is based on the true story of the wrestler Saúl Armendáriz. On Prime Video’s official website, the synopsis says: “Saúl Armendáriz, a gay amateur wrestler from El Paso, rises to international stardom after he creates the character Cassandro, the ‘Liberace of Lucha Libre.’ In the process, he upends not just the macho wrestling world, but also his own life.” 

Armendáriz began his professional wrestling career as a last resort in El Paso, Texas in 1988 as “Mister Romano.” However, he was encouraged to abandon the character a year later. He changed his ring name to Cassandro in late 1989. Cassandro The Exotico, who Bernal plays in the biopic, was a trailblazer and an icon for queer people interested in Lucha libre.

The biopic is directed by Oscar-winner Roger Ross Williams. Alongside Bernal and Castillo in the cast are Bad Bunny, Roberta Colindrez, Perla De La Rosa, and Joaquín Cosío.

‘Cassandro’ premiered last January at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival. It will hit limited theaters on September 15, and then premiere digitally on Amazon Prime Video on September 22.
