Edgar Ramirez is definitely someone to put on your 2012 “Watch List.” Fresh off a Golden Globe and Emmy nomination for his work in Carlos, the Venezuelan-born actor’s ready to star in a highly-touted Osama Bin Laden biopic.
The movie will actually cover just the last few hours of Bin Laden’s life and it’s got some very big names attached to it. Academy Award winning director Kathryn Bigelow will helm the flick and stars like Chris Pratt and Jessica Chastain have also confirmed their involvement.
Ramirez is rumored to be playing one of the Navy SEALS responsible for Osama’s takedown. The film’s studio has already put the movie on the fast track and it should be released by the end of the year (just in time for the 2012 Oscar season).
But those of you craving more Edgar won’t have to wait that long. He’ll also be appearing in the epic sequel Wrath of the Titans, which is set to hit theaters by late March.
