Juan Diego Botto is getting (air) time for good behavior…
The 40-year-old Argentine-Spanish actor has been cast as the male lead opposite Michelle Dockery in TNT’s drama pilot Good Behavior.
Based on the Letty Dobesh books by Wayward Pines author Blake Crouch, Good Behavior is written by Crouch and Chad Hodge and tells the story of Letty (Dockery), a thief and a con artist whose life is always one wrong turn, one bad decision from implosion — which is exactly how she likes it.
In his first role on American television, Botto will play Javier, the magnetic contract killer who crosses paths with Letty when she overhears his plans to kill a client’s wife. Like Letty, Javier lives a dangerous life outside the system, and their attraction is immediate and complicated. When he discovers her intentions to undermine the murder plot, he’s impressed but undeterred. Javier seeks Letty out to kill her, but ends up pulling her into a dangerous, seductive working arrangement.
Botto recently received his fifth Goya Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor in the 2013 feature Ismael.
Shooting begins at the end of the month.
