Helen Anzalone Studios, one of Hollywood's most recognized and respected acting schools, announced today that student Raini Rodriguez has recently signed a three-picture deal with Sony Studios.
Rodriguez, who will play a lead role in Adam Sandler's latest production, Paul Blart, Mall Cop, has attended classes at the Los Angeles studio for the past 3 years and studied under the direction of Helen Anzalone, the school's founder. The 15-year-old will play the role of Maya Blart, daughter of Paul Blart, who will be played by Kevin James.
"I'm extremely proud of the success that Raini has achieved," said Anzalone, one of the most highly regarded acting coaches in Los Angeles. "She has the ability to go a long way and I hope I can continue helping her in her quest to be an outstanding actor."
