Eugenio Derbez could be on his way to the Oscars!

“Extra’s” Cheslie Kryst caught up with the star to get the scoop on his role as a music teacher in the new drama “Coda.”

It turns out he almost turned down the part, Eugenio telling Cheslie, “I’m a comedian — I thought it was probably too dramatic for me.”

“Coda” is available now on Apple TV+.
