It’s Paradise found for Matthew Del Negro…
The 42-year-old Latino actor has joined the cast of USA’s Old Hollywood pilot Paradise Pictures, written and executive produced by Suits scribe Rick Muirragui.
The period drama revolves around ambitious people striving to get to the top in 1940s Hollywood, when the dream factory was at its peak. Little do they know the challenges they’re about to face: the end of the studio monopolies, the blacklist and the disruptive new technology of television.
Del Negro plays Ray Aberdeen, the head of security at Paradise Pictures, and Tom Kirby’s (Morgan Spector) right-hand man. Being the studio “fixer” requires Aberdeen to clean up messes, cover up scandals and mete out justice to contract players who have crossed the line.
Del Negro currently recurs on Scandal and had extensive arcs on The Sopranos, The West Wing, Mistresses and The United States of Tara. He most recently played Detective Hauser opposite Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara in feature Hot Pursuit.
