Puppet is Gay!

...the movies that earned De La Paz his fame may not be staples in everyone's film library. In 1979's Boulevard Nights, the actor plays the lead role of Chuco, a teenager who dies in a gang shootout. In 1992's American Me, he appears as Puppet, a prison gang member ordered to kill his brother.

Oh my gosh, this really surprises me. I wonder if it really plays out as well with the vatos as he says. He is very talented; I always thought he would be more famous. Maybe this held him back.
