Nicholas Gonzalez has booked a ticket to Bordertown…
Fox has announced that the 38-year-old Mexican American actor will voice the character of Ernesto Gonzalez on the network’s new animated series Bordertown.
From Family Guy’s Mark Hentemann and Seth MacFarlane, the series will explore family, politics and everything in between. It centers on two very different families living in a fictional Southwest desert town on the U.S. – Mexico border.
Gonzalez’s character is described as an ambitious immigrant and family man, who has been in the country less than 10 years, but is already doing better than his neighbor Bud Buckwald (voiced by Hank Azaria), which, it turns out, is a bit of an issue for the less-industrious native.
Azaria’s character is a married father of three and a Border Patrol agent who is just a tad behind the times and feels slightly threatened by the cultural changes transforming his neighborhood.
In addition to Gonzalez and Azaria, the voice cast members include Alex Borstein, Missi Pyle, Judah Friedlander and guest voice Efren Ramirez.
