James Martinez (Breaking Bad, Aquarius) has joined the cast of USA Network’s drama pilot Queen Of The South, based on the popular telenovela La Reina Del Sur. He will recur as Gato Fierros, a right-hand man of drug lord Cesar Guemes, who seems to delight in making his victims suffer before he does away with them. The series centers on Teresa Mendoza (Alice Braga), who’s forced to go on the run when her drug-dealing boyfriend is unexpectedly murdered in Mexico.
Luis Guzman (The Lookalike, How To Make It In America) and Finesse Mitchell (A.N.T. Farm, Saturday Night Live) have landed recurring roles in Showtime’s comedy pilot Roadies. The show follows a hot-ticket concert tour with a twist: The band is in the background, and the roadies take the spotlight. Guzman will play Gooch, the band’s cherished bus driver. Mitchell is Harvey, the charming tour accountant.
