It’s one natural disaster after another for Ryan Guzman…
The season 4 premiere of Fox‘s 9-1-1, starring the 33-year-old half Mexican American actor, in keeping with a show tradition, will start with a major mudslide that hits Los Angeles.
The show’s last two season premieres have featured an earthquake and a tsunami to kick things off.
Now, a Los Angeles dam breaks apart, flooding the city from the Hollywood Hills down and causing a massive mudslide that takes out a major landmark and threatens lives in the city.
The Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear procedural drama returns in January. It’s expected that the show will explore the issues surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, as well as other emergencies like the dam breaking.
The 45-year-old Mexican American actor has landed a recurring role on Roswell, New Mexico.
DeSantos will portray Edgar, a character described as “an enigmatic leader who intersects with Roswell’s heroes on a clandestine mission to better understand the unknown. Though he comes from an army background, Edgar has a wistful outlook on the universe. He believes that sometimes the best approach to an established problem is a fresh and creative perspective. Edgar will seek out those who align with his cause — but as a keeper of secrets he’ll expect loyalty and discretion, no matter the cost.”
DeSantos currently recurs on the CBS drama All Rise and TNT’s Animal Kingdom.
His other credits include The Rookie,NCIS: New Orleans, The Good Doctor and SEAL Team.
On the feature side, he can be seen in the indie Windows on the World alongside Luna Lauren Velez, Edwards James Olmos and Ryan Guzman.
