Luis Moncada is preparing for aShort(y) stint…
The 42-year-old Honduran actor has landed a recurring guest starring role on the forthcoming third season of Epix’s Get Shorty.
He’ll play Queso, a lieutenant in the Capotillo Cartel that controls crime in Los Angeles and butts heads with Yago, who is newly released from prison after the events of season two.
The dark comedy is based on Elmore Leonard’s best-selling novel. In season two of the series, Miles Daly (Chris O’Dowd) struggled to reconcile his ambitions as a filmmaker and a family man with his skill set as a career criminal. His progress in Hollywood is jeopardized when his washed-up producing partner Rick Moreweather (Ray Romano) agrees to wear a federal wire and begins a romantic relationship with dangerous crime boss Amara De Escalones (Lidia Porto).
Season three finds Miles embracing more ruthless methods as he settles scores in an attempt to continue climbing the Hollywood ladder.
Moncada is best known for his role as Marco Salamanca in Breaking Badand its spin-off Better Call Saul. His other credits include Queen of the South, The Night Shift as well as the TV adaptation of Lethal Weapon.
