Danny Garcia, Returns to HBO's DIVORCE and He Wants to Make You Laugh
Actor, writer and producer Danny Garcia, thrives in comedic roles. Over the years, he's appeared on several popular television shows (Blue Bloods, Mr. Robot, Odd Mom Out), but when Garcia found out he was returning to the second season of HBO's Divorce, he was excited to work with everyone again. Garcia plays Gabriel a Spanish-speaking construction worker on the series.
The actor states, "improvising with Thomas Haden Church is definitely a highlight. And I've become close friends with Yul Vazquez who plays Craig Anders, Gabriel's boss on the show." But what the actor truly loves about being a part of the series is "feeling that everyone is really in it to put out the best show possible," a work ethic he is emulating with his most recent endeavor, a short film called "Some Bad News."
Despite his success in television, Garcia still writes roles that he would like to portray because "there is no greater feeling than telling a story and making people laugh," says the actor.
So when the actor met Alain Alfaro, the creator of critically acclaimed web series "Henry," about a year ago, it was like divine providence; they've been writing together ever since. "Now we're like an old married couple (I'm sure our wives can appreciate that)," joked the actor.
They've had success in this arena, since a comedic short film they made together called "An Unwelcomed Guest" is an official selection of the Dominican Film Festival in NYC. But there's no rest for the weary. Garcia is currently working on raising money for "Some Bad News" which is slated to shoot this summer. "The best way I know how to get the comedic roles that I want, is to write roles that I would like to see myself in," says the actor.
In "Some Bad News" a routine doctor's visit takes a turn, when Eduardo has to deal with the possibility of losing his manhood. The short film is being co-produced with writer/director Alain Alfaro, and stars Divorce's Yul Vazquez along with Danny Garcia.

It is Garcia's hope that his latest next endeavor makes the rounds on the film festival circuit. In the meantime, you'll catch him on the small screen, making you laugh, on HBO's Divorce.
