Two actors have booked gigs on high-profile series.
Miguel Gomez (“Bless Me,” “Ultima”) has scored a regular role in FX’s drama “The Strain,” which comes from Guillermo del Toro and Carlton Cuse (“Lost”). It is an adaptation of a vampire novel trilogy by del Toro.
“The Strain” has a pilot order, but there are designs for a 13-episode series pickup. “The Strain” tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (played by Corey Stoll, “House of Cards”), head of the Centers for Disease Control's rapid response 'canary team', who is investigating an outbreak reminiscent of a strain of vampirism in New York City. Mia Maestro (“Breaking Dawn”) will also play Dr. Nora Martinez, a member of Goodweather’s team and sometimes lover.
Gomez will play Augustin “Gus” Elizade, a gangster who loves his mother (awww). Straight out of an 18-month stint in juvie for manslaughter, Gus becomes a strong soldier in the battle against the vampires.
Gomez will soon appear in feature film “The Domino Effect.”
Gomez is represented by Greene & Assoc. and attorney Jeff Bernstein.
Roger Howarth (“General Hospital,” “One Life to Live”) has booked a multi-episode arc on Showtime’s comedy series “Californication.”
Howarth will play a yoga teacher in Karen’s (played by Natascha McElhone) class. Karen is the on-again/off-again girlfriend of Hank (played by David Duchovny), and the mother of his daughter.
Howarth is represented by Gersh and Bob McGowan of McGowan Management.
