Half-Mexican Kid Cudi made his acting debut last season in HBO’s How To Make It In America as party animal Domingo Brown. The rapper and producer had absolutely no acting skills when he began, but he's determined to step his game up for season two.

If you’re a die-hard fan of HBO Sunday nights (like me!), and a fanatic of shows like True Blood, Hung and Entourage, you’re probably thinking that this is as good as HBO Sunday nights can get. You think nothing—no matter how good or funny or dramatic—will impress you more than those shows. Well, you’re wrong! I’ve just seen the first 3 episodes of HBO’s new comedy Bored to Death (which premiers this Sunday Sept. 20), and I am happy to report that it's funnier than Hung and Entourage combined (sorry Ari).

Okay, so technically, HBO’s new comedy series Hung—about a man who uses his biggest asset to make money as a male prostitute—isn’t Latin entertainment. It doesn’t tackle any Latin themes, and there are no Latinos or Latinas in the main cast—or even in supporting roles, for that matter (that’s typical for HBO, by the way).
