The former "That '70s Show" star will play the antagonist in the forthcoming TV adaptation of the Robert Rodriguez movie released in 1996, The Hollywood Reporter announces.
Wilmer Valderrama is the latest addition to the cast of "From Dusk till Dawn," which is currently being shot in Austin, Texas. The actor best known for playing Fez on "That '70s Show" from 1998 to 2006 will show a darker side in the new series in the role of the crime lord Carlos Madrigal.
The series will star D.J. Cotrona ("G.I. Joe: Retaliation") and Zane Holtz ("The Perks of Being a Wallflower") in the roles of Seth and Richie Gecko, the two brothers and partners in crime played by George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino in the movie.
Earl McGraw, the sheriff played by Michael Parks in the movie, will be played by Don Johnson, while Jesse Garcia ("The Avengers") will play Texas Ranger Freddie, a new character created for the series.
"From Dusk till Dawn" will be the first original series from El Rey, the network Robert Rodriguez is launching in the US this December.
