Paulina Chávez is conquering new Land(man)…
The Latina actress has been cast in Taylor Sheridan’s upcoming Paramount+ drama series Landman.
Chavez, who rose to acclaim on the Netflix series The Expanding Universe of Ashley Garcia is among a list of new series regular cast additions that includes Kayla Wallace, James Jordan and Mark Collie.
They join previously announced leads Billy Bob Thornton, Michelle Randolph and Jacob Lofland.
Co-created by Sheridan and Wallace, Landman is set in the proverbial boomtowns of West Texas and is a modern day tale of fortune seeking in the world of oil rigs.

Thornton stars as Tommy Norris, a crisis manager for an oil company. Randolph plays Ainsley Norris, the wild and strong-willed seventeen year old daughter of Tommy Norris (Thornton). Lofland portrays Cooper Norris, Tommy Norris’ (Thornton) son.
Chávez plays Ariana, a young mother whose family has suffered a misfortune.
