Eduardo Verástegui stars in "For Greater Glory," opposite Andy García and Eva Longoria, as Anacleto Gonzalez Flores. 

Acclaimed Mexican actor, singer and model Eduardo Verástegui rose to fame as a member of the Mexican pop group Kairo, with whom he toured the world as a singer and solo recording artist, performing sold-out concerts in over 13 countries.

At the age of eighteen, Verástegui initially left his hometown village in Northern Mexico to pursue a modeling career in Mexico City, where he first landed work with Calvin Klein, among others.

In 1997, he began acting in Mexican Spanish Soap Operas produced by Televisa. After starring in five highly rated telenovelas broadcast in over 19 countries, Verástegui was featured on hundreds of international magazine covers including People En Español, which voted him among the 50 "Hottest Hispanics."

In 2001, Verástegui was on a flight from Miami to Los Angeles when he was approached by the Vice President of Casting at 20th Century Fox for the studio's first ever Latino-driven film, "Chasing Papi," alongside Jaci Velasquez, Sofia Vergara, and Roselyn Sanchez. The movie received a nomination by the Artios Awards for Best Casting for Feature Film in a Comedy. Verástegui also co-starred alongside Carlos Ponce in Eric Hannah's indie film "Meet Me in Miami," and has appeared in primetime television series such as "CSI: Miami," "Charmed" and "Karen Cisco." He also appeared opposite Jennifer Lopez in her acclaimed music video "Ain't It Funny!" as well as in her international self-titled fragrance television commercial.

In 2004, Verástegui teamed with director Alejandro Monteverde and producer Leo Severino to form Metanoia Films (the Greek word for "repentance"), a company committed to projects that entertain, engage and inspire. The company's first film "Bella," starring Verástegui, was released in 2006 and won the People's Choice Award at the 2007 Toronto Film Festival.

Born and raised as a Roman Catholic in Xicotencatl, Tamaulipas, Mexico, Verástegui currently resides in Los Angeles.
