Damian Alcazar Lands Role in Spanish-Language 'Breaking Bad'
MEXICO CITY -- Mexican actor Damian Alcazar has been cast to play drug kingpin Tuco Salamanca in Metastasis, Sony Pictures Television's Spanish-language version of Breaking Bad.
Shooting began this week in Bogota. Sony is producing the series with Colombian shingle Teleset.
Alcazar played a drug trafficker in Luis Estrada's narco-themed hit dramedy El Infierno (Hell). Diego Trujillo (El Capo) landed the starring role as Walter Blanco.
Metastasis will air in most major Spanish-speaking markets.
"We have spent an extraordinary amount of time developing a compelling, rich story with incredible production quality," said Sony Latin America production executive Angelica Guerra.
