Spanish Actor Eduardo Noriega Joins Schwarzenegger In Last Stand

The Kim Jee-Woon directed action flick Last Stand has been slowly but surely building a solid cast, however the film was short one crucial player: The villain of the film, who may be facing off against Arnold Schwarzenegger at some point, had yet to be cast, until today.

Last Stand follows the pursuit of a fugitive who is attempting to make his way to Mexico, the last stop being a small border town, in which Schwarzenegger plays the local sheriff. According to Variety, Spanish born Eduardo Noriega has been cast in the role of the villain. Noriega’s most recognizable role on this side of the Atlantic Ocean is likely to be playing Cesar in Open Your Eyes (Abre los Ojos), the film on which Cameron Crowe’s film Vanilla Sky was based.

Noriega joins Schwarzenegger in Last Stand, along with the recently cast Jaimie Alexander, as well as Friday Night LightsZach Gilford. The movie is expected to hit theaters in January 2013. More information on Last Stand can be found in our movie database here.
