Jones, Guzman join ABC’s Mind Games


Movie mutant Vinnie Jones (“X-Men : The Last Stand”, “Smokin’ Aces 2 : Blowback”) and resident movie-mischief Luis Guzman (“We’re the Millers”, “Waiting..”) have been cast in ABC’s mid-series drama “Mind Games”, according to Deadline.

In the show, “about two brothers — Ross (Christian Slater), a con man, and Clark (Steve Zahn), suffering from bipolar disorder — as they run a problem-solving firm that uses psychological manipulation”, Jones will play ” the cerebral, charismatic and just a bit psychotic Isaac Vincent, who is Sam’s (Jaime Ray Newman) employer, at least for this particular venture, and who threatens Ross’ life”, while Guzman is ”Nate, one of Isaac’s henchman, who is physically imposing and very intimidating, but with a soft center.”

Jones recently starred in “Escape Plan” with Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, while Guzman recently completed work on “The Lookalike” from Aussie director Richard Gray.
