Franka Potente (The Bourne Identity), Amaury Nolasco (Prison Break) and Elizabeth Rodriguez (Orange Is The New Black) are among a septet of actors who have joined Cinemax‘s drama pilot Blanco, starring Shiloh Fernandez. Written by Mark Rosner and directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, the pilot, from Fox TV Studios and Lakeshore Entertainment, centers on Ruben (Fernandez), an uptown gangster — nicknamed Blanco for being a light-skinned Dominican — who uses his status as a confidential informant to turn the tables on law enforcement and build his criminal empire. Potente will play Leslee, Blanco’s girlfriend; Nolasco is cast as Jesus, Blanco’s brother; and Rodriguez, repped by Stone Manners Salners Agency and Opus Entertainment, will play NYPD Detective Stephanie Gomez. Also cast in the pilot are Sebastian Arcelus (House Of Cards) as Blanco’s lawyer Andy Silver, Audrey Esparza (The Following) as Blanco’s brother’s girlfriend Veronica, Erik LaRay Harvey (Boardwalk Empire) as NYPD Detective Mike LeBeau, and Alex Hernandez (Law & Order: SVU) as Blanco’s associate Nando.
