“Jane the Virgin” Season 3 is really reeling in some big guest stars since singers Gloria and Emilio Estefan have agreed to make cameos next season.
The Cuban-American couple will play themselves in Season 3’s third episode, according to ET Online . They will be performing together with Rogelio Dela Vega (Jamie Camil), therefore adapting a “Latin telenovela for an American audience.”
It just so happens that the Estefans’ cameo will be in the episode directed by another well-known Latina - “Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria, reported TV Line.
Camil was actually so excited with the news that he shared it on his Instagram account (@jamiecamil). The actor posted a photo of a “Check In” sign at the fictional Marbella Hotel with Longoria’s name written on a card beside it. “Guess who is checking into the Marbella Hotel this Season? #JaneTheVirgin,” he captioned the photo.
Previously, the show had Britney Spears, Paulina Rubio, Ke$ha, and Colombian singer Juanes appear on the show. Most of them are connected to Camil’s character Rogelio, who is a well-known soap opera star.
Rogelio is undeniably one of the scene-stealers of the show. His bromance with son-in-law Michael Cordero (Brett Dier) always livens up any scene. If Camil was in charge with the script, he would definitely let Michael survive the shooting in the Season 2 finale.
“Because, you know, Rogelio was devastated when Michael got shot. I'm like, 'I cannot go on with life, so what's going to happen?’” he told Pop Sugar. “I just hope that Michael gets better… that this gunshot doesn't transform into a horrible ending, which I don't even want to think about. But let's see what happens!”
“Jane the Virgin” Season 3 will premiere on Monday, Oct. 17, 2016 at 9 p.m. EDT on The CW.
