Jay Hernandez is joining the gang at Fox…
The 35-year-old Mexican American actor has landed a role in Fox’s drama pilot Gang Related.
The project, written by Chris Morgan and directed by Allen Hughes, centers on Ryan Lopez (portrayed by Charlie’s Angels alum Ramon Rodriguez), a gang member sent in to infiltrate the San Francisco Police Department.
Hernandez, who most recently starred in ABC’s short-lived series Last Resort, will portray Dante Acosta, gang lord Javier Acosta’s son, and Ryan’s best friend since childhood.
Hernandez, who rose to acclaim after starring opposite Kirsten Dunst in Crazy/Beautiful, has previously appeared in Hostel, World Trade Center and LOL.
