Vladimir “Vlad” Caamaño is joining the force…
The Dominican American comedian and actor has been added to cast of CBS’ upcoming drama Tommy as a series regular.
Tommy, from the Bull team of co-creator Paul Attanasio and producer Amblin Television, stars Edie Falco as Abigail “Tommy” Thomas, a former high-ranking NYPD officer who becomes the first female Chief of Police for Los Angeles. She uses her unflinching honesty and hardball tactics to navigate the social, political and national-security issues that converge with enforcing the law.
Caamaño plays an ebullient Dominican transplant from Tommy’s home city of New York, who becomes part of her security detail but also her off-the-shelf investigator as she solves crimes in pursuit of the truth.
The series-regular cast also includes Michael Chernus, Adelaide Clemens, Russell G. Jones, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Lucy Phillipand Joseph Lyle Taylor.
Caamaño previously wrote, produced and headlined his own semi-autobiographical comedy pilot for NBC, A Bronx Life.
His other credits include television appearances on Superstore, Marvel’s Runaways and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
