    great news!! he is an amazing actor and this seems to be a drama movie perfect for getting the recognition that he deserve

    Edgar Valdez was a white Mexican. The dude looks straight up white; so Charlie can play him no problem.

  • Pretty Little Mars

    No he looks Mexican lmao Hollywood needs to let minorities represent themselves on screen

  • SkinnyFatLovesJax

    I adore Charlie…the man is a great actor, physical perfection, sweet and kind to,his fans and totally unaffected by fame. I’ve met home and he is a sweetheart. He’ll be amazing in this movie.

    I agree that Mexicans need to be represented but so do the white Mexican’s that do in fact exist. Many Mexicans are from European descant & look white. Edgar Valdez is one of them. Now if they found a white Mexican actor to play him that would be great but how many do you know have the mainstream fan base that Charlie Hunnam does?
