Chicago – Michael Peña is a serious guy – dedicated to his career direction, acting craft and perspective on a life in show business. But that is not all he is, as he has dedicated a new role for his young son. It is the new animated film called “Turbo,” and Peña portrays the voice of Tito, the owner of the world’s fastest snail.
The familiar character actor is coming off a stellar 2012 with his acclaimed performance in “End of Watch,” co-starring Jake Gyllenhaal. He has been a working actor since 1994, and has
uncompromisingly built his career through notable parts in “Crash” (2004), “Million Dollar Baby” (2004), “World Trade Center” (2006) and “The Lincoln Lawyer” (2011). Besides lending his voice to the character of Tito in “Turbo,” Peña will also portray Cesar Chavez in the 2013 biography film of the civil rights activist in “Chavez.”
