Mostly Credited As: Chuy Bravo
Birth Name: Jesus Melgoza
Country Of Birth: Mexico
Now famous as the personal assistant of basic-cable TV hostess Chelsea Handler, Chuy Bravo's path to Hollywood stardom was long and arduous—mainly because he has little nugget legs, so it takes him twice as long to get anywhere.
Born Jesus Melgoza, Chuy's first exposure to Hollywood was as a young man, when the production of The Three Amigos rolled into his tiny Mexican village, which led to a temporary job arranging nightly hookers for the production crew.
Bitten by the Hollywood bug—and a poisonous tarantula, but that's another story—Chuy was determined to make it to Los Angeles and pursue his dream of big-screen stardom. He has now, more appropriately, settled for the small screen.
Armed with nothing more than a condom full of cocaine that a local drug lord paid him to swallow and smuggle, Chuy hopped aboard a little horsey and proceeded on an eight-month trail ride to the United States.
After years of odd jobs that most notably included stints as the stunt double for Fantasy Island star Hervé Villechaize and The Hulk's Lou Ferrigno, Chuy has settled into what he hopes is a lifelong position as the assistant to one of cable TV's fastest-rising stars. In his spare time, Chuy moonlights as an actor and can be seen in The Rundown, starring The Rock, and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.
And he can now add author to his list of desirable traits. Pre-order Chuy's very first book, Little Nuggets of Wisdom: Big Advice from the Small Star of Chelsea Lately at Amazon.com
Chuy is single. He has no children (that he publicly acknowledges), lives in the prestigious San Fernando Valley and drives a Toyota Corolla. Watch out, ladies!
