‘The Resident’ Casts ‘Law & Order True Crime’ Star Miles Gaston Villanueva In Recurring Role

Deadline has recently reported that Law & Order True Crime star Miles Gaston Villanueva has been cast in a major recurring role in The Resident.

Villanueva will be playing a character named Alec. Here is what the Deadline article states about his character:

Villanueva will play Alec, a born innovator, a loner and iconoclast who has spent a lifetime on the move. His father was an eccentric and Alec lived part of his childhood in a converted school bus. He studied to be an infectious disease doctor, but after a stint volunteering with Partners in Health on a Navajo reservation, he embraced a vision of medicine that tries to alter lifestyle via community outreach to prevent, rather than treat, illness. Alec is tender with patients but blunt with everyone else. And yet he is a charmer. His relationships with women tended in the past to lack deep roots. Whenever it was necessary, he moved on.

You may also recognize Villanueva from The CW’s Jane The Virgin or ABC’s For The People.

The Resident airs Mondays at 8/7c on Fox.

Currently a writer for The Resident, but I have many interests that include country music, fantasy and science fiction movies. I'm just your typical southern girl who was raised by a single dad. A Chris Wood and Matt Czuchry fangirl forever.
