Crime is about to pay for Elvis Nolasco
The Dominican actor has been cast alongside Caitlin Gerard in the ABC drama American Crime, which hails from 12 Years of Slave writer John Ridley.

Nolasco and Gerard will portray an interracial couple, both drug addicts.
Nolasco’s credits include guest appearances on Third Watch, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and the television mini-series Miracle’s Boys.
He most recently worked on Spike Lee’s film Oldboy, portraying the character of Cortez.
