Does Conan O’Brien take his show to various countries solely for the chance to break into a career starring in foreign soap operas and soapy dramas? Possibly! Deadline reports that the comedian, who is currently in Mexico City filming his prime-time special Conan Without Borders: Made in Mexico, took a break from his project to make a guest appearance on telenovela Mi Adorable Maldición. O’Brien is no newcomer to the world of secret lovers and evil twins: In past trips to Armenia, Germany, and South Korea, the late-night host made cameo appearances in soap operas and dramas filmed locally. In his telenovela debut, O’Brien played Joseph Robinson, a “mysterious man that sells cheese.” Watch O’Brien’s Facebook video preparing for the role below.
