After playing the serial killer Professor James Gellar on Showtimeâ€™s â€œDexter,â€ it looks like actor Edward James Olmos wants to continue playing a villain.
Olmos is in negotiations to play Papi Greco, a Mexican druglord who confronts the protagonists of â€œ2 Guns.â€
The film is about a DEA agent and an undercover naval intelligence officer who ended up investigating each from a set up by the mob.
Olmos would join the crime action film that also stars Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington.
â€œ2 Gunsâ€ will be directed by Baltasar Kormakur (â€œContrabandâ€) and from a script written by Blake Masters (â€œBrotherhood,â€ â€œLaw & Order: LAâ€). The story is based off a graphic novel by Steven Grant.
