Miguel Gomez

as "Augustin 'Gus' Elizalde"

Miguel Gomez stars as “Augustin ‘Gus’ Elizalde,” a former gangbanger and ex-con.

Although united with Quinlan, Setrakian and Fet, Gus has a secret agenda — keeping his strigoi mother, Guadalupe, safe and well-fed. This project will lead to him and Angel getting arrested and conscripted into one of Justine Faraldo’s deadly “chain gangs,” where convicts are secretly forced into dangerous tunnel-clearing assignments.

Miguel Gomez is quickly establishing himself as a unique and rising talent through his current and upcoming projects.

Gomez was recently seen in theaters across the country starring opposite Jake Gyllenhaal and Rachel McAdams in Antoine Fuqua’s Southpaw. In the film, Gomez plays boxer “Miguel Escobar,” the rival of Gyllenhaal’s “Billy Hope.” The film was released last year by The Weinstein Company.

His previous credits include Carl Franklin’s Bless Me Ultima, as well as The Domino Effect opposite James D’Arcy for Oscar®-nominated director Paula van der Oest. Gomez also appeared as the lifeguard “Ramon” in the critically-acclaimed “Miami” episode of FX’s Louie.

Gomez will next be seen in two very different films: the thriller Pacific Standard Time as a charismatic criminal caught in a love triangle with co-stars Alex Russell and Willa Holland, and as a Brooklyn-born soldier in the war drama Leavey opposite Kate Mara.
