According to Variety, Michael Mando, who starred in “Better Call Saul,” has agreed to co-star with Brian Tyree Henry in Peter Craig and Ridley Scott’s upcoming Apple TV+ series “Sinking Spring.”

The role of Nacho Varga, a criminal on AMC’s “Better Call Saul” prequel series, makes Michael Mando most well-known. He most recently earned nominations for Best Supporting Actor for the last season of Better Call Saul from the HCA, Saturn, and Gold Derby. In 2019 and 2021, he was nominated for two SAG Awards for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series while a member of Better Call Saul.

His previous roles include Vic in Orphan Black, Mac “The Scorpion” Gargan in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Vaas Montenegro in the Far Cry video game franchise.

Apple’s eight-episode series “Sinking Spring,” which is based on Dennis Tafoya’s book “Dope Thief,” follows two longtime Philadelphia friends and criminals who pose as DEA agents to rob an unidentified house in the country.

However, their small-time heist quickly turns into a life-and-death endeavor when they unwittingly uncover the most significant hidden drug corridor on the Eastern seaboard.

According to the official character description, Mando will portray the co-lead role of Manny Cespedes, a kind-hearted buddy of Ray’s (Henry), who he first met. At the same time, they spent time together in the Youth Authority.
