Miguel Gomez is about to hit the ring for his latest project…
The Latino actor has landed a role in the Antoine Fuqua-directed boxing feature Southpaw.
Written by Kurt Sutter, the film stars Jake Gyllenhaal as an up-and-coming fighter who loses everything in a moment of rage and has to start from the bottom to get his life back.
Gomez will play his boxing rival Miguel “Magic” Cantu.
His credits include Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming drama series The Strain, FX’s Louie and The Domino Effect, and the feature films Bless Me, Ultima and Pacific Standard Time.
