Ramón Rodriguez is preparing to infiltrate the San Francisco Police Department…
The 33-year-old Puerto Rican actor has landed the lead role in Fox’s drama pilot Gang Related.
Rodriguez, who last appeared on television in ABC’s short-lived Charlie’s Angeles re-do, will portray Ryan Lopez, a gang member who infiltrates the SFPD and rises through the ranks in the department. In the process, he must learn to balance his obligations to his crime family with the increasing sense of loyalty for his new family — the SFPD’s Gang Task Force.
Rodriguez – who has been writing his own screenplay with Rosie Perez, Only For My Son, which he plans to direct and produce with her – previously starred in Battle: Los Angeles and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
