Robby Ramos is being brought to heels…
The Latino actor has landed a recurring role opposite Stephen Amell, Alexander Ludwig and Mary McCormack in Heels, Starz’s eight-episode hour-long drama set in the outrageous world of independent professional wrestling.
Written by Michael Waldron, with Mike O’Malley as showrunner, Heels is a story about the men and women who chase their dreams in the world of small-town pro wrestling. Set in a close-knit Georgia community, it follows a family-owned wrestling promotion as two brothers and rivals, Jack Spade (Amell) and Ace Spade (Ludwig), war over their late father’s legacy. In the ring, somebody must play the good guy (Ludwig) and somebody must play their nemesis, the heel (Amell). But in the real world, those characters can be hard to live up to — or hard to leave behind.
Ramos will portray Diego, a wrestler at the DWL. In the ring, Diego wrestles as a Heel, but in the locker room, he’s a wisecracking and always encouraging colleague and friend.
Heels is produced by Lionsgate Television in association with Paramount Television Studios.
Ramos most recently appeared in Snowfall, Orange Is the New Black and The Blacklist.
