Casting News - May 31, 2018

Cinemax's Strike Back and USA's Queen of the South.

  • Alfonso Herrera has been cast in a recurring role on the drama's upcoming third season. He starred for two seasons in FOX's The Exorcist and has recurred on Netflix's Sense8.
  • He will play Javier Gallegos, a mercenary willing to kill for the highest bidder. His brash, untamed nature puts him at odds with his new boss: Teresa Mendoza (Alice Braga).
  • Production has begun today on the ten-episode sixth season, which will be shot entirely in Malaysia. Returning stars Warren Brown, Daniel MacPherson and Alin Sumarwata will be joined by new cast members Jamie Bamber (Battlestar Galactica) and Yasemin Allen (Water and Fire).
  • When a Russian bomber crashes in the South China Sea, the covert special-ops soldiers of Section 20 are sent on a mission to investigate. There, they cross paths with Katrina Zarkova (Allen), a rogue Russian operative with questionable loyalties.
  • Under orders of the new commanding officer, Col. Alexander Coltrane (Bamber), Section 20 pursues stolen contents of the Russian jet across Southeast Asia. They will work alongside the Malaysian police to shut down a Triad gang in Kuala Lumpur, uncover a corrupt plot by a wealthy Indian businesswoman running for Parliament and plunge into the jungles of the Golden Triangle in Myanmar, facing off against mercenary drug agents and terrifying warlords, as they uncover a conspiracy that threatens to push the world to the brink of global conflict.
