'Better Call Saul' Actor Joins 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' (Exclusive)
Better Call Saul actor Michael Mando has joined the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming, the Sony and Marvel Studio’s reboot of the movie franchise featuring the web-swinging superhero.
The feature began shooting this week in Atlanta.
Jon Watts is behind the camera for the movie that stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in a story that takes the character back to his high-school roots.
As usual in the case of Spider-Man castings, character details are almost nonexistent.
Mando is a Canadian actor who currently co-stars as the scene-stealing criminal named Nacho in AMC’s Emmy-nominated Better Call Saul. He also appeared on Orphan Black and brought to life the fan-favorite character Vaas Montenegro in the Ubisoft videogame Far Cry 3.
Mando is repped by CAA and Amanda Rosenthal Talent in Canada.
