Another member of the American Crime cadre of actors is set for the third installment of the ABC anthology series from John Ridley. Benito Martinez, who co-starred in the first season and guest starred in Season 2, will return to American Crime for season 3.
He joins fellow retuning players Timothy Hutton, Felicity Huffman, Regina King, Lili Taylor, Richard Cabral and Connor Jessup in the acclaimed series, executive produced by Ridley and Michael McDonald. His character provides a further glimpse into Season 3, which explores labor issues, economic divides and individual rights in North Carolina.
“Ever since Benito brought the role of Alonzo Gutierrez to life in season one, John and I have been looking for a character that would be as memorable and worthy of Benito’s talent. He will be tackling the role of a man searching for his missing son,” said McDonald.
The Shield alum Martinez, who recently worked opposite Tom Cruise on the crime thriller American Made and had recurring roles on How To Get Away with Murder and The Blacklist, is repped by Ro Diamond at SDB Partners.
