The 48-year-old Mexican American actor has landed a recurring role in Hulu’s eight-episode Veronica Mars revival.
The reboot, set to premiere in 2019, returns star Kristen Bell, Enrico Colantoni and Jason Dohringto the series that ran for three seasons on UPN and theCW from 2004-2007.
In the revival, spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s lifeblood tourist industry. After Mars Investigations is hired by the parents of one of the victims to find their son’s killer, Veronica (Bell) is drawn into an epic mystery that pits the enclave’s wealthy elites, who would rather put an end to the month-long bacchanalia, against a working class that relies on the cash influx that comes with being the West Coast’s answer to Daytona Beach.
Collins will play Alonzo, a mid-level hitman for a Mexican cartel. Because of his facility with English, he’s chosen by his boss to travel to Neptune to take out whoever killed his wife’s nephew. The more time Alonzo spends in the U.S. the more doubts creep in about his chosen career field, particularly when he falls hard for a local girl.
The Emmy-nominated Collins stars as Lawrence on HBO’s Westworld. He recurred on HBO’s Ballersand most recently appeared in feature Super Troopers 2.

The 45-year-old Mexican and Spanish American actor has joined the cast of HBO’s series Westworld, a television adaptation of the 1973 sci-fi western film that was set in a high-tech theme park that was staffed by robots who authentically replicated Roman, cowboy and medieval times.
After the park’s computer system breaks down, the robots ran amok and guests found themselves stalked by a gunslinging robot, played by Yul Brynner.
Collins will star opposite Ed Harris, Anthony Hopkins, Jeffrey Wright, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden and Thandie Newton in the reboot of the 1973 pic.
Collins, who starred in Pacific Rim, will play Lawrence, a sly criminal who really knows his way around Westworld.

Following lengthy discussions, USA Network has closed a deal with CBS Television Studios for a pilot order to Evil Men, a supernatural drama pilot starring the 44-year-old Mexican and Spanish American actor and Dallas Roberts.
The project, to be directed by Gary Fleder, was written by Daniel Taplitz (Breakin’ All The Rules). It follows Harry Killas (Roberts), an upstanding, middle-class family man whose life is turned upside down when he is approached by a frighteningly powerful entity and commanded to kill “evil men” or see his family — along with his city — utterly destroyed. However, the gleeful psycho who is meant to be his first target, instead begins teaching him how to carry out his new destiny.
Collins will play Lazlo Kirk, the profoundly evil former war criminal with magnetic charm and a deep, unpredictable violent streak, who forces himself into Harry’s life on a twisted mission of personal redemption.
Filming is slated to begin in early December in Vancouver.
“This supernatural drama is a symbolic tale of good versus evil set in the everyday modern world,” said Jackie de Crinis, Executive Vice President of Original Programming at USA Network, “It is a highly relatable story that begs the question of just how far we would go to protect our families.”
