Walter Perez is the latest actor to join the cast of Fatal Attraction. He joins the cast in the recurring role of Jorge Perez, an “easygoing DDA” who is said to be both sweet and genuine, and successful in his own work ethic “without locker room talk.” Perez joins a cast that includes Joshua Jackson, Lizzy Caplan, Amanda Peet, Wanda De Jesus, Alyssa Jirrels, Toby Huss, Reno Wilson and Brian Goodman.
The Paramount+ series is set to be a reimagining of the hit 1987 film starring Michael Douglas and Glenn Close. It’ll focus on the “timeless themes of marriage and infidelity through the lens of modern attitudes towards strong women, personality disorders, and coercive control.”
Perez’s credits include Queen Sugar, where he played Romero, and Friday Night Lights where he starred as Bobby ‘Bull’ Reyes. On the film side, Perez has appeared in Bodied, I Spit on Your Grave: Vengeance Is Mine, and the TV movie The Pregnancy Project.
Alexandra Cunningham (Dirty John) serves as the showrunner for Fatal Attraction, as well as the writer. She’ll executive produce the series alongside Kevin J. Hynes and Amblin Television’s Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey.
