Anjelika Washington (If You Could Only Be You) and David Castaneda (End of Watch) have been cast opposite John Hawkes in Amazon comedy pilot The Legend of Master Legend, directed by James Ponsoldt.

Written by Micah Fitzerman-Blue & Noah Harpster based on Joshuah Bearman’s Rolling Stone article about real-life superheroes, the project centers on Master Legend (Hawkes), a man who tries to defend justice and defeat wrongdoers on the Las Vegas Strip.

Washington will play Cody, a tomboy and the daughter of Frank and Tana. Castaneda will portray Mandy Mandujano, a sweet-faced Las Vegas police officer who’d rather talk than shoot. He’s a true believer in Master Legend, even when he has to save Master Legend from himself.

Castaneda’s credits include recurring roles on Jane the Virgin and Switched at Birth. He’s repped by Don Buchwald & Associates and Velocity Entertainment Partners. Washington is with Momentum Talent Agency and 23 Management Group.
