Adan Cantois ready to fight…
The 38-year-old Mexican actor has been cast in the Halle Berry’s feature directorial debut, the MMA drama Bruised.
Written by Michelle Rosenfarb, the film follows Jackie Justice (played by Berry), a washed-up MMA wrestler who has failed at the one thing she’s ever been good at – fighting. When 6-year-old Manny, the son she walked out on years ago, returns to her doorstep, Jackie has to conquer her own demons, face one of the fiercest rising stars of the MMA world and ultimately fight to become the mother this kid deserves.
Canto will play Berry’s character’s MMA manager and boyfriend.
Canto’s credits include the acclaimed Netflix series Narcos, ABC’s Designated Survivor and Blood and Oil and Fox’s The Following.
On the film side, he co-starred as the Sunspot in 20th Century Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. He recently wrote, directed and produced his first short The Shot, starring Theo Rossi.
