Today, I’m joined by Mexican-American actor and screenwriter Raúl Castillo. Raúl is in a couple of recently released movies, Army of the Dead and Wrath of Man.
Army of the Dead is the best movie I’ve seen in a really long time, and I could not recommend it more to any of you. Raúl gives amazing performances in both of them, and it’s incredible to see how different the guy I interviewed is from the people in these movies.
I know he’s had a long career, but this guy is just going to keep on getting bigger and bigger. It’s a pleasure talking to him, and we have a good old laugh along the way.
