Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for Birds of Prey starring the 55-year-old Puerto Rican actress.

The trailer opens with a comedic police station showdown, before the real fun starts…

Director Cathy Yan’s feature film debut is actually called Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) and, as the title suggests, the superhero action is geared more toward Deadpool’s deadpan humor than The Dark Knightbleakness.

The spotlight is on Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), the fan-favorite Suicide Squad wild-child who teams with Renee Montoya (Perez), the Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and Black Canary (Jurnee Smollet-Bell). The cast also includes Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain.

The gang will clash with Ewan McGregor as the ruthless crime boss called the Black Mask. 

Birds of Prey will open in theaters on February 7.

Sandoval Lands Recurring Role on FX’s “Fargo”

Olivia Sandoval is North Dakota bound…

The Latina actress has landed a key recurring role on the upcoming third season of FX’s series Fargo.

Olivia Sandoval

The new installment is set in 2010 and features Ewan McGregor (in dual roles), Carrie Coon, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and David Thewlis.

In Season 3, Emmit Stussy (McGregor), the Parking Lot King of Minnesota, sees himself as an American success story, whereas his slightly younger brother Ray (also McGregor) is more of a cautionary tale. Forever living in his brother’s shadow, Ray is a balding and pot-bellied parole officer with a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt – and he blames his brother. Their sibling rivalry follows a twisted path that begins with petty theft but soon leads to murder, mobsters and cutthroat competitive bridge.

Sandoval will play St. Cloud police officer Winnie Lopez in a season-long arc. Blessed with the gift of gab, Winnie is not shy about sharing her feelings on everything from family planning to being a female on the force.

Sandoval, the daughter of actor Miguel Sandoval, recurred on Medium and guest-starred most recently on The Real O’Neals.

Pino to Star in Procedural Drama Series “Gone”

Danny Pino is going, going, Gone

The 42-year-old Cuban American actor and former Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Cold Case alum will star opposite Chris Noth and Leven Rambin in Gone, a 12-episode procedural drama series for NBCUniversal International Studios, Germany’s RTL and France’s TF1.

Danny Pino

The series, which eyes a launch in winter 2017-18, was created by Matt Lopez (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) based on Chelsea Cain’s novel One Kick.

The project tells the fictional story of Kit “Kick” Lannigan (Rambin), survivor of a famous child-abduction case, and Frank Booth (Noth), the FBI agent who rescued her. Determined never to fall victim again, Kick trains in martial arts and the use of firearms. She finds her calling when Booth persuades her to join a special task force he created dedicated to solving abductions and missing persons cases. Paired with former Army intelligence officer John Bishop (Pino), Kick brings her unique understanding of the mind of a predator. Bishop is initially skeptical about bringing Kick onto the team, but over the course of the season, he will come to appreciate her unique skill-set and they will become a formidable crime-solving duo.

Pino most recently starred opposite Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Tony Shalhoub in CBS’ critically praised series Braindead. He previously played Detective Nick Amaro on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit for multiple seasons, and starred for seven seasons as Detective Scotty Valens on Cold Case. He also recurred on ABC’s Scandal.
