David DeSantos is heading to the CW…
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.
