Showtime Announces the Cast for Jonas Cuarón’s Hombre

-

Showtime has announced the cast for Hombre, its new pilot from Academy Award nominee Jonas Cuarón (Gravity). Marisé Alvarez (The Vessel), Greg Grunberg (A Star Is Born), Pepi Sonuga (Famous in Love), Adriana Santos (Taken) and Noah Reyes will join executive producer and Golden Globe winner Gael García Bernal (Mozart in the Jungle, Coco) for the emotional thriller, which is set to begin production at the end of April in Los Angeles.

The project is created by Cuarón, who will also direct the pilot and serve as executive producer. Hombre is a co-production from Showtime and Makeready.

Hombre centers on a Mexican-American family man named Marcos Osuna (Bernal) who is living undocumented in the United States. When his wife Leticia is detained by ICE, Marcos, both desperate and resourceful, goes to unprecedented lengths to get her back. The project is an emotional thriller about a man enmeshed in a dangerous double life, contending with powerful forces set on thwarting his unwavering desire to unite his family.

Alvarez will play Marcos’ smart and selfless wife Leticia, whose detention by ICE proves to be the ultimate test on her marriage and close-knit family. Sonuga will play Adanna, a kind-hearted undocumented immigrant from Nigeria who works with Marcos at a motel. Grunberg will play Norm, a friendly and well-intended ICE trainee. Santos will play Leticia’s sister Teresa. Reyes will play Marcos’ and Leticia’s pre-adolescent son Anthony.

Hombre is executive produced by Jonas Cuarón, Gael García Bernal, Brad Weston, Sam Baum, Karla Cornejo Villavicencio, Pam Abdy and Scott Nemes.
