Grammy-winning singer Miguel is heading to Hollywood.

The Mexican-American R&B crooner will join the cast of the Ben Affleck produced “Live By Night.” He is slated to play Estefan, the brother of Graciella Suarez, played by Zoe Saldaña, according to Deadline.

This will be Miguel’s first acting gig.

“Live By Night,” which is currently being filmed, is a Prohibition-era crime drama based on the Dennis Lehane novel of the same name. It focuses on Joe Coughlin (played by Affleck), the black-sheep son of a police captain who gets involved in high levels of organized crime in Tampa.

Saldaña’s Graciella is a woman that Coughlin meets as he becomes more involved in the organized crime world.
