The cast list for Alcatraz continues to grow, as the latest series from J.J. Abrams, Lost producer Elizabeth Sarnoff and the rest of the Bad Robot gang has tapped Heroes actor Santiago Cabrera for a series regular role.
Deadline reports that Cabrera is joining the Fox series as Jimmy, a uniform cop who just so happens to be engaged to tenacious police officer Rebecca, the show’s main character played by Sons of Anarchy veteran Sarah Jones. Cabrera’s casting completes the show’s hunt for series regulars, with his fellow cast members including Jorge Garcia as Alcatraz specialist Diego Soto, Sam Neill as agency man Emerson Hauser, Robert Forster as detective-turned-bartender Ray Archer and Parminder Nagra as Lucy, a lab technician.
Last week, Abrams offered a few words about the developing series: “I don’t want to give anything away because no one wants to hear that, but I will say that it’s a beautifully written and surprisingly emotional script, although not surprising when you know that Liz Sarnoff wrote it. She’s amazing. The show is about an incredibly odd and mysterious turn and secret about the prison of Alcatraz, and a modern-day mystery that involves something very odd that happened there 50 years ago.”
