The cast list for DC’s upcoming Suicide Squad film is filling out, and Jay Hernandez is rumored to be playing the latest comic baddie.
El Mayimbe from Latino Review is reporting that Friday Night Lights star Jay Hernandez is playing El Diablo aka Chato Santana in David Ayer's Suicide Squad. He describes Hernandez's role as small.
It will be just a cameo in the film. When we meet him he will be a "prisoner being held in the super-powered criminal part of the prison."
Take it with a grain of salt at this point, but it stands to reason they’d populate the film with several B-list villains from the comic canon.
Along with El Diablo, the report also claims we’ll get a glimpse of fellow baddies Killer Frost, Block Buster, King Shark and Live Wire. These criminals, along with the Joker and El Diablo, will apparently be held in a special area designed for supervillains.
