Raymond Cruz is experiencing a little Wander-lust…
The 58-year-old Mexican American actor and former Breaking Badstar hasjoined the cast of the April Mullen-directed conspiracy thriller Wander.
Cruz will star opposite Heather Graham, Aaron Eckhartand Katheryn Winnickin the film.
Written by Tim Doiron, Wander follows Arthur Bretnik (Eckhart), a mentally unstable private investigator, who, after being hired to probe a suspicious death in the town of Wander, becomes convinced the case is linked to the same ‘conspiracy cover up’ that caused the death of his daughter.
Graham is set to play Shelley Luscomb, an attorney and close friend of Arthur. Shelley has known Arthur long before his world unraveled and acts a voice of reason in his life.
Cruz, who played drug lord Tuco Salamanca in the AMC series and recently starred in Warner Bros.’ The Curse of La Llorna, plays Sheriff Luis Santiago, a character whose hardness and decisiveness has recently made way for philosophical musings.
“Raymond carries such a grounded weight with him. His spirit is quietly mesmerizing,” said Mullen.
Production started last month and the feature will be shooting entirely in New Mexico.
