Vincent Spano has signed to cry “Freedom,” landing the lead in the UPN pilot from Joel Silver’s Silver Pictures and Warner Bros. Television.
Spano will play Col. Cally Beach, a feisty Marine who heads up an elite, covert martial arts unit that attempts to restore freedom to their country.
“Freedom” will be directed by Corey Yuen, who worked with Silver on “Lethal Weapon IV” and “Romeo Must Die.” Hans Tobeason (“The Marshal”) wrote the pilot, to be shot in Vancouver.
Spano’s feature film credits include “Alive” and “Oscar.” He also appeared on NBC’s short-lived drama “Prince Street” and will appear in the upcoming film “Texas Rangers.”
Spano is repped by Innovative Artists Agency, Rigberg-Roberts-Rugolo Management and attorney Joan Vento.
