Jay Hernandez To Play El Diablo In 'Suicide Squad'
Jay Hernandez will live out the role of Chato "El Diablo" Santana
DC Comics clearly isn’t trying to play second fiddle to Marvel. Producers behind the potential blockbuster Suicide Squad have confirmed appearances by a handful of high-profile actors including Will Smith, Jared Leto, rapper Common and now, Chicano actor, Jay Hernandez.
To put an end to rumors that speculated Hernandez would play Chato "El Diablo" Santana come newly surfaced photos (above), revealing him as the ex-criminal who meets a still-living, comatose Lazarus Lane, the original and vengeful El Diablo.
Hernandez is perhaps best known for his role opposite Kirsten Dunst in Crazy/Beautiful, but has starred in Friday Night Lights and Hostel.
Suicide Squad is slated to premiere on Aug. 5, 2016.
