Wilmer Valderrama Joins 'From Dusk Till Dawn' Series

 

Robert Rodriguez’s anticipated television adaptation of his famed 1990s vampire movie continues to grow, with the addition of more notable actors.

Two weeks after Robert Patrick was added to the cast alongside Madison Davenport, Brandon Soo Hoo, and Eiza Gonzalez, The Hollywood Reporter has learned Wilmer Valderrama of ‘That '70s Show’ fame has joined as well.

‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ is a 10-episode series helmed by Rodriguez and released on his upstart station, the El Rey Network. Based on his 1996 movie of the same name that starred George Clooney, Harvey Keitel, and Salma Hayek, among others, the series will recreate the events of the film while going more in depth with both characters and settings.

Valderrama will undertake a major role playing the villain Carlos Madrigal, a Mexican crime lord. His role is one of the characters that has been added to the series adaptation, of which there is no one comparable in the film.

‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ follows the hard luck of the Fuller family, who while traveling in an RV across Texas are beset by a pair of thieves (D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz) who are fleeing from the law.

The group happens upon a brothel, a place of initial refuge and indulgence that reveals to in fact be a haven for vampires. So blood and chaos and death ensue.

While the cast continues to be fleshed out, fans are still awaiting word on whether or not Danny Trejo, who appeared in the first film as well as two sequels and has achieved some cult fame for portraying Rodriguez’s Mexican assassin Machete on the big screen, will make an appearance as well.

‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ is currently filming in Texas, and is set to premiere in early 2014.
