Kuno Becker’s career is going south… To Southfork, that is.
The 34-year-old Mexican actor and former telenovela star has joined the cast of TNT’s Dallas reboot, which was picked up for a 15-episode second season following a successful summer run.
Becker will portray Andres, the troubled brother of Elena (Jordana Brewster). As a boy, Andres (“Drew” to friends and family) witnessed his father’s death, which turned him into an angry juvenile delinquent. He ended up enlisting in the military, and after a tour in Iraq straightened him up, found work on oil rigs all over the globe. Andres will undoubtedly provoke the wrath of Bobby, J.R. and the rest of the Ewings when he returns to Southfork to continue drilling where his father left off.
Becker, who rose to fame in Latin America in telenovelas like Pueblo chico, infierno grande and Soñadoras, had a recurring role on CBS‘ short-lived legal drama The Defenders. He also appeared on three episodes of CSI: Miami‘s final season last year, where he shared screen time with Hollywood legend Raquel Welch. And he gained international notoriety as the star of the Goal! film trilogy.
