Adrian Martinez has landed a Lady of a project…
The Latino actor has landed the role of Elliot, a dog-catcher, in Disney’s live-action/CG hybrid update of the animated classic Lady and the Tramp.
Martinez, last seen opposite Amy Schumer in the comedy I Feel Pretty, joins Kiersey Clemons, Thomas Mann, Yvette Nicole Brown as part of the live cast along with Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux as the voices for Lady and Tramp.
Charlie Bean is directing the film based on the 1955 original, which followed an upper-middle-class American cocker spaniel named Lady who meets a streetsmart, downtown stray mongrel called Tramp, and the two embark on many romantic adventures including that iconic spaghetti smooch dinner scene.
The film will be released on Disney’s forthcoming streaming service that’s slated to launch in fall 2019.
Martinez’s credits include WB’s Focus and Office Christmas Party.
