Michael did a quick photoshoot and video interview with LA Mag recently and they just released it earlier today and we have now uploaded the photos to the gallery and you can watch the short video below!

When Michael Cimino moved to L.A. two years ago, he spent his nights working as the mechanical-bull operator at a West Hollywood steak house. Now the actor is turning heads as the main character in Hulu’s LGBTQ drama Love, Victor, which debuted June 17. The show, a spin-off of the 2018 film Love, Simon, follows teen Victor Salazar as he struggles with his sexuality in a conservative Latin household. While Cimino, who is of Puerto Rican and Italian German descent, has been lauded for his performance, he’s quick to say “I still feel like I’m just a kid from Vegas.”

LOVE, VICTOR HAS BEEN RENEWED FOR SEASON 2!

The long awaited renewal for fan favorite Love, Victor has been renewed at Hulu for a season 2! You can read excerpts from the press release below. Are you excited for Season 2?

Hulu Announces Season Two Series Renewals for Fan Favorite Love, Victor and Padma Lakshmi Food Exploration Series Taste The Nation

Following a successful first season, Love, Victor returns to Hulu for a 10-episode second season. Ranking as the #1 most-watched Drama on Hulu during its premiere week this past June, Love, Victor is set in the world of the groundbreaking 2018 film LOVE, SIMON which was inspired by Becky Albertalli’s acclaimed novel, “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.” The first season followed Victor, a new student at Creekwood High School, on his own journey of self-discovery, facing challenges at home, adjusting to a new city and exploring his sexual orientation. As Victor and his friends mature, so will season two, promising to build on these themes of sexual identity, acceptance and navigating the odyssey we all know as high school.

The series stars Michael Cimino, Ana Ortiz, James Martinez, Isabella Ferreira,  Mateo Fernandez, Rachel Naomi Hilson, Bebe Wood, George Sear, Anthony Turpel and Mason Gooding. The film’s original writers Isaac Aptaker (This Is Us) and Elizabeth Berger (This Is Us) serve as executive producers alongside Brian Tanen, Jason Ensler, Isaac Klausner, Marty Bowen, Adam Fishbach, Wyck Godfrey, Pouya Shahbazian and Adam Londy. 20th Century Fox Television serves as the studio.


Michael is featured in Variety’s Power of Young Hollywood 2020 and he’s featured on #9 from the top even though there is no official ranking but I like to think that he was fresh on the author’s mind if he made it at number nine out of fifty-two. You can view Michael’s excerpt below, as well as a link to the full article.

MICHAEL CIMINO
actor

Cimino’s starring role as a questioning Latinx teen in Hulu’s “Love, Victor” has been a breakthrough for the 20-year-old. “It’s been great seeing all this positive recognition for the show and how it’s affected people. It’s an honor to represent the LGBTQ community,” says the actor. “I want to be the person that represents their struggle, their story, their ethnicity, whatever it may be, and to represent them accurately by depicting them in a way that’s true to life.” He recently helped launch We the Movement L.A., which has raised money to aid Black-owned businesses in the Pico-Redondo area of Los Angeles.

Michael appears in a new photoshoot with VMAN Magazine! You can now view the photoshoot in our Photo Archive (by clicking the images) and read a little excerpt below.

Excerpt:

As for Michael, he took finding his voice literally, through his passion for singing. “I always wanted to be a singer… ever since I was a little kid,” he told VMAN. A member of his church knew this and one day asked the aspiring singer to join his acting class. Cimino agreed. Having several role models to look up to, Michael credits one, in particular, his older cousin Jon-Jon, who serves more as a brotherly figure. Michael describes him as a charismatic, funny, and outgoing gay man. Reminiscing, he says, “I just remember wanting and trying to be like him, trying to be a person that maybe has an impact on people.” He shares with honesty, “Jon-Jon is a huge reason why I am the person I am today;” crediting his cousin who welcomed conversations and shared personal experiences that helped to build the character of Victor.


Michael and the rest of the Love, Victor cast played one of the newest Buzzfeed quizzes to find out which Love, Victor character they truly are!
