David DeSantos is joining the team…
The 46-year-old Latino actor has landed a recurring role on the upcoming fifth season of CBS’ S.W.A.T.
DeSantos will play Rodrigo Sanchez, a 20-year LAPD veteran and former SWAT member.
Sanchez is a gregarious, confident, and savvy political climber who left SWAT in pursuit of loftier jobs within the LAPD.
S.W.A.T. stars Shemar Moore as a former Marine and locally born-and-raised SWAT sergeant who is tasked with running a specialized tactical unit that is the last stop in law enforcement in Los Angeles.
DeSantos can be seen recurring on Season 3 of the CW’s Roswell, New Mexico, as well as on TNT’s Animal Kingdom.
On the film side, he recently appeared opposite Edward James Olmos and Richard Cabral in Windows on the World.
