Rick Gonzalez has lined up his next project…
The 40-year-old Puerto Rican and Dominican American actor has been cast as a series regular in Langdon, NBC’s drama pilot based on Dan Brown’s best-selling thriller novel The Lost Symbol.
Gonzalez will star opposite Sumalee Montano, Beau Knapp and Ashley Zukermanin the pilot project.
Written by Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie, Langdon follows the early adventures of famed Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon (Zukerman), who must solve a series of deadly puzzles to save his kidnapped mentor and thwart a chilling global conspiracy.
Gonzalez will portray Nunez, a uniformed Capitol policeman.
Other cast members include Valorie Curry and Eddie Izzard.
The Lost Symbol is the third Brown novel featuring the character of Langdon, following Angels & Demons and The Da Vinci Code, and is set after the events of Da Vinci Code.
Langdon, which hails from Imagine Television, CBS Television Studios and Universal Television, is among five 2020 pilots which NBC has committed to filming later this year, once production can safely begin amid coronavirus restrictions.
Gonzalez is coming off a four-year run as Mad Dog on the CW’s Arrow. His previous credits include an arc on Mr. Robot and the series regular role of Manny Maquis on the USA series Rush.
