Alon Aboutboul (London Has Fallen) and Amin Joseph (Baywatch) have booked series regular roles on FX’s Snowfall, John Singleton’s 1980s cocaine-epidemic drama pilot. Co-created and executive produced by the Boyz N The Hood director Singleton and Erick Amadio, and directed by El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, the pilot has been undergoing a revamp.
Aboutboul will play Avi Drexler, an unpredictable cocaine dealer operating in the San Fernando Valley. Joseph will portray Franklin’s uncle, Jerome Saint, a prison hardened hustler and low key weed dealer.
Aboutboul’s recent credits include Focus Features’ London has Fallen, alongside Gerard Butler, and the Adrien Brody drama Septembers of Shiraz. He recently wrapped the Brad Anderson political action thriller High Wire Act, opposite Jon Hamm and Rosamund Pike. Aboutboul is repped by Abrams Artists Agency and managed by Teitelbaum Artists Group.
