He sees this young, charismatic man as the way to up his own game, to make more money,” Morales told NBC News.Morales is no stranger to playing a Mexican drug cartel leader on screen. His character in the new hit Netflix show “Ozark” was the number two guy in a drug cartel from Sinaloa, Mexico.
As the world changes, some things never change, because as a Latino, we are always in demand for playing the bad guy,” Morales said.
Over the years, Morales has come to terms with playing drug dealers and other criminal elements, especially now that cartel bosses have been major movie characters.
Although he finds the so-called bad boy roles “more fun” to play, Morales said it’s important to strike a balance in the kinds of characters Latino actors play on screen.
“It’s more fun playing the bad guy than being one, but the good thing is that I have played the president of the United States in ‘The Brink,’” Morales said, referring to his character Julián Navarro.
