Kevin Alejandro just got hotter, if that’s even possible. We’ve seen him as the once absent father on Ugly Betty, a witch on HBO’s True Blood, A ruthless detective on CBS’ Golden Boy, and now? Alejandro is gearing up to film The Keepers, a web series where he plays a retired badass superhero to say the least.
There’s a few reasons why we all should do what we can in terms of helping make this project a reality by donating to the production’s kickstarter page. One of those reasons being the fact that the 36-year old might be shirtless somewhere during the series. Super heroes get shirtless from time to time, and this is an opportunity we’re not willing to give up.
The onscreen detective along with his The Keepers co-stars Stephen Taylor and Adam Conger are hoping to raise 30,000 for the comedic project that Alejandro describes as “Batman meets Super.”
“The idea was created by my friend Stephen Taylor, he’s also an actor. We’re actually from West Texas together, and we’ve been friends since we were 11 years old.” Alejandro went on to tell us
Taylor, who will co-produce alongside Alejandro will also write and act in the production, and can currently be seen playing the role of Wayne on the Charlie Sheen hit series Anger Management.
Alejandro says that his idea of The Keepers being “A little bigger and a little cooler” brought them all to initiate a kick-starter campaign. He says, “We knew it could turn out really cool. If we actually had the money to shoot, imagine what it could look like.”
The pilot alone was shot for a whooping $1000 dollars, and although Taylor and his wife had been sitting on the idea of the series for several months, it’s been about two years in the making. Alejandro who stars on CBS’ cop-drama Golden Boy explains that the pilot for The Keepers was shot a week before he relocated to shoot the CBS series. Now on hiatus, he and the gang are making The Keepers a priority.
“We were hoping to shoot the first season by the end of May,” says the on-screen detective.
