It’s a new dawn for Esai Morales…
The 51-year-old Puerto Rican actor has landed a recurring role on the upcoming second season of Robert Rodriguez’s From Dusk To Dawn: The Series.
Morales will portray Lord Amancio Malvado, a figure of terrifying cruelty and power who has a complicated and obsessive relationship with Santánico Pandemonium (portrayed by Eiza González).
He joins previously announced new cast members Danny Trejo and Briana Evigan.
El Rey Network’s first original scripted series, From Dusk Till Dawn is based on the cult classic film of the same name by El Rey co-founder Rodriguez, who created the series and directed four of the first season’s episodes.
Morales, currently a series regular on HBO’s The Brink, has previously appeared in Criminal Minds and NYPD Blue.
