Character actor de luxe Michael Pena (End of Watch) is talks to join Marvel’s Ant-Man.
And we hope those talks are damned serious, as Pena is something of an unrecognized screen treasure seemingly incapable of giving a bad performance.
If Pena would indeed be added, the cast of Ant-Man would slowly start to look pretty darn great, with Paul Rudd and the legend that is Michael Douglas already set in the lead roles.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor might play a “tough Latino.” Apparently and were also considered among others.
Let’s just hope that the extremely sketchy role description isn’t all that ends up on the screen. Pena is too good an actor to be wasted on one-dimensional ethnic-henchman roles.
Ant-Man crawls into theaters July 31, 2015.
