Of all the cast of TVs “Prison Break” it’s Amaury Nolasco, who plays kindly escapee Sucre, that’s seemingly become the – excuse the pun – ‘break-out’ star. Since the show debuted the Puerto Rico-born actor appeared in quite a few big movies, notably “Transformers” and “Max Payne”. And now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, he has snagged a plum role in “The Rum Diary” opposite Johnny Depp.
Nolasco plays Segurra, the son of the biggest cement-plant owner on the island. Aaron Eckhart, Amber Heard, Richard Jenkins, Giovanni Ribisi and Michael Rispoli are also in the movie.
Nolasco also has a role in the forthcoming “Armored” opposite Matt Dillon and Laurence Fishburne. The Nomrod Antel-directed actioner tells of a guard for an armored truck company who is coerced by his veteran coworkers to steal a truck containing $10 million.
Honestly thought Wentworth Miller would be the breakout star of “Prison Break” – but it’s not looking that way. He hasn’t done a film since the series premiered in 2005.
