Until recently Raúl Castillo was known primarily by those who watched the HBO show “Looking,” about thirty-something gay men in San Francisco, and saw his performance as sensitive barber Richie. Four years after the end of that show, he’s everywhere. He has appeared on the Netflix series “Atypical,” landed a spot on Starz show “Vida” and most recently played one of the leads in the breakout film “We the Animals.”
María Hinojosa sits down with Castillo to discuss how he went from bassist in a punk band in McAllen, Texas to a playwright in Boston to a celebrated actor in New York City.
