The clock has struck twelve for Yul Vazquez…
The 51-year-old Cuban actor and musician has been cast as a series regular in NBC’s supernatural drama pilot Midnight, Texas, based on the best-selling trilogy by Charlaine Harris.
Written by Monica Owusu-Breen and directed by Niels Arden Oplev, the project is described as “Twin Peaks meets True Blood” in Midnight, Texas, a remote town where your neighbor could be a vampire, a witch, a werewolf, or even an angel.
Vazquez will portray the Reverand, a grizzled Mexican cowboy who always wears his Stetson boots. He presides over the wedding chapel and cemetery.
Vazquez played the series regular role of President Westwood on The Lottery. His other credits include television appearances on Person of Interest, Magic City and The Good Wife.
