Benito Martinez is back to a life of Crime…
The 45-year-old Latino actor is set to return for another installment of ABC’s anthology series American Crime.
Martinez, who co-starred in the first season of the series from John Ridley and guest starred in Season 2, will return for season 3.
He joins fellow retuning players Timothy Hutton, Felicity Huffman, Regina King, Lili Taylor, Richard Cabral and Connor Jessup in the acclaimed series, executive produced by Ridley and Michael McDonald.
His character provides a further glimpse into Season 3, which explores labor issues, economic divides and individual rights in North Carolina.
“Ever since Benito brought the role of Alonzo Gutierrez to life in season one, John and I have been looking for a character that would be as memorable and worthy of Benito’s talent. He will be tackling the role of a man searching for his missing son,” said McDonald.
Martinez, an alum of The Shield, recently worked opposite Tom Cruise on the crime thriller American Made. He had recurring roles on How To Get Away with Murder and The Blacklist.
