Actor Laz Alonso Lands Several New Films & A TV Show!

Posted Jul 11, 2010

We just discovered that actor Laz Alonso is making some more news, as he is not only starring in the film Jumping The Broom as we reported several weeks ago, but he also just landed the role in the new A&E series titled Break­out Kings, a project that  we hear was ini­tially devel­oped as a pilot for the FOX network.

We hear the show is about an uncon­ven­tional part­ner­ship of U.S. mar­shals and a group of con­victs who join forces to catch fugi­tives on the run, and will shoot in Toronto and go into pro­duc­tion in the fall.

The series is cre­ated and exec pro­duced by Prison Break veterans Nick San­tora and Matt Olm­stead. Also exec pro­duc­ing are Peter Chernin, Kather­ine Pope and Gavin Hood, who directed the pilot.

As you recall, Alonso is fresh off his lead role of Tsu’Tey in 20th Cen­tury Fox’s huge film Avatar, and was recently also cast in the new film titled Straw Dogs with James Woods and James Marsden. He also is currently in pre-production for the film titled Redemption which stars Lark Voorhies, Louis Gossett Jr., Sharon Leal and Vanessa Williams.
