Cuban Hunk Andy García will be the main star this Sunday at Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
García, 54, will be Bacchus at this year’s parade. The Bacchus krewe made the announcement on Tuesday at the National World War II Museum. Its March 6 parade will have a World War II theme this year. Mardi Gras is March 8.
The krewe, formed in the late 1960s and featuring massive floats, typically has a major celebrity as its king. It is named for the Roman god of wine.
Saints quarterback Drew Brees was Bacchus in 2010.
García is best known for his roles as a mafia boss in "The Godfather Part III" and a casino kingpin in the "Ocean's Eleven" franchise.
