David Castaneda’s career is about to become Legend-ary…
The Latino actor has been cast opposite John Hawkes in the Amazon comedy pilot The Legend of Master Legend, directed by James Ponsoldt.
Written by Micah Fitzerman-Blue & Noah Harpster based on Joshuah Bearman’s Rolling Stone article about real-life superheroes, the project centers on Master Legend (Hawkes), a man who tries to defend justice and defeat wrongdoers on the Las Vegas Strip.
Castaneda will portray Mandy Mandujano, a sweet-faced Las Vegas police officer who’d rather talk than shoot. He’s a true believer in Master Legend, even when he has to save Master Legend from himself.
Castaneda’s credits include recurring roles on Jane the Virgin and Switched at Birth.
