Rey Gallegos is getting Clint Eastwood’s SEAL of approval…
The Latino actor, one of the stars of Fox’s upcoming action-drama Gang Related, has joined the cast of the legendary actor-turned-director’s latest film American Sniper.
Starring Bradley Cooper as decorated marksman Chris Kyle, the film is based on Kyle’s memoir American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History.
Gallegos will portray Tony, chief of a U.S. Navy SEALs team and one of the instructors during Kyle’s training.
In addition to Cooper and Gallegos, the film also stars Navid Negahban, Eric Close and Eric Ladin.
Filming on the Warner Bros. project is set to start at the end of March in Morocco.
Gallegos’ previous credits include appearances on Sons of Anarchy, Castle, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Saving Grace, Cold Case, 24 and Prison Break.
