Why Mayans M.C. Star Danny Pino Keeps Taking The Gritty RolesBy Delaina Dixon | September 4, 2018 | Entertainment
Tonight, Mayans M.C. premieres on FX with a very familiar face. Danny Pino, who starred with a badge on Cold Case and Law & Order: SVU, goes a bit darker as Miguel┬áGalindo, leader of the Galindo cartel (read: cocaine smugglers). Miguel is Ivy League-educated, so luckily, we still get to see Danny in a suit.
So why does the actor keep joining such dramatic storylines? “There is a complexity to the character on these types of shows,” he told DivaGalsDaily at the FX TV Press Tour last month. “You get to discover so many different layers [of your character], and I enjoy doing that.”
Well, it will take a moment for us to get used to Danny being on the other side of the law, but we’re sure to enjoy it just as much.
Mayans M.C. premieres Tuesday, Sept. 4┬á at 10 p.m. on FX.
