The Marksman – Jacob Perez with Liam Neeson
Jacob Perez is a rising young actor that hit his mark (no pun intended) in The Marksman with Liam Neeson.
In his first feature film, the young actor impressed all those around him with his talent and maturity on the set. In fact, Nesson saw the potential of Perez to portray Miguel by suggesting to director Robert Lorenz that the kid take the role.
With this debut, Perez brought a sense of authenticity of an undocumented child on the run from hitmen from Mexico. It helped develop a father-son relationship with sees Neeson’s Jim character as a protector from the adversaries.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Ex-Marine and hardened Arizona rancher Jim Hanson (Neeson) simply wants to be left alone as he tries to make a living on an isolated stretch of borderland. But everything changes when he witnesses 11-year-old migrant Miguel (Perez) and his mother fleeing from a band of assassins sent by a ruthless drug cartel. After being caught in a shoot-out, Miguel’s mother begs Jim to take her son to the safety of their family in Chicago. Defying law enforcement, Jim and Miguel hit the road and slowly begin to forge an unlikely friendship, while the cartel’s relentless assassins blaze a bloody trail, hot on their heels.
The film also stars Katheryn Winnick, Juan Pablo Raba, and Teresa Ruiz.
