Natalie Morales is celebrating the little things…
The 34-year-old Cuban American actress has joined the cast of Warner Bros.‘ The Little Things opposite Oscar winners Denzel Washington and Rami Malek.
The film follows Deke (Washington), a burned-out Kern County, CA. deputy sheriff who teams with Baxter (Malek), a crack LASD detective, to nab a serial killer. Deke’s nose for the “little things” proves eerily accurate, but his willingness to circumvent the rules embroils Baxter in a soul-shattering dilemma. Meanwhile, Deke must wrestle with a dark secret from his past. Jared Letois in talks to join in the role as the serial killer in the project from writer-director John Lee Hancock.
Morales will play a Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department detective working for Baxter.
