Carter Redwood (Yellow Bird) has joined the cast of National Geographic Channel’s scripted miniseries The Long Road Home, based on Martha Raddatz’s New York Times bestseller. The Long Road Home will relive a heroic fight for survival during the Iraq War when the First Cavalry Division from Fort Hood, TX, was ferociously ambushed on April 4, 2004, in Sadr City, Baghdad — a day that came to be known in military annals as “Black Sunday.” The event series will cut between the soldiers on the ground and the homefront in Texas, where their wives and families await news for 48 hellish hours, expecting the worst. Redwood will play Specialist Pedro Guzman, a 21-year-old from Brooklyn who is the platoon’s medic. Redwood has a major supporting role in the film Yellow Bird opposite Jennifer Aniston, which premiered at Sundance in January. He’ll also be featured on the upcoming season of Orange Is the New Black. Redwood is repped by Abrams Artists Agency and Anonymous Content.
