On the heels of last week's start of production in Austin, El Rey Network today announced the newest cast members of the highly-anticipated, From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, premiering in Q1 2014 on the new English-language cable network. Created in association with FactoryMade Ventures and created and executive produced by network founder and filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, the Supernatural crime saga (based on the cult classic film of the same name) will feature Robert Patrick (who previously appeared as Buck in From Dusk Till Dawn 2) as Jacob Fuller, Madison Davenport (Save Me, Shameless) as Kate Fuller, Brandon Soo Hoo (Tropic Thunder, Ender's Game) as Scott Fuller and Eiza González (Lola Erase una Vez) as Santánico Pandemonium. The 10-episode serialized drama will serve as the first original scripted series to air on the new genre-busting cable network. El Rey Network will debut nationally in December 2013.
Eiza González recreates the role of Santánico Pandemonium, credited for launching Salma Hayek's film career. Robert Patrick portrays Jacob Fuller, father to Kate Fuller (Davenport) and Scott Fuller (Soo Hoo), who are held hostage by main characters, Seth and Richie Gecko and find themselves along for the ride of their life. They join previously announced D.J. Cotrona (Dear John, G.I. Joe Retaliation) who plays Seth Gecko, Zane Holtz (Holes, The Perks of Being a Wallflower) as Richie Gecko; Jesse Garcia (Quinceanera, Sons of Anarchy) who plays Texas Ranger Freddie Gonzalez, a new character created for the series, and Don Johnson (Django Unchained, Nash Bridges) who joins in a recurring role as Sheriff Earl McGraw.Read More
