Gabriel Basso’s star has been on the rise since he led the hit Netflix series The Night Agent, and he’s eying his next big role. The young actor is in talks to join the star-studded cast of Clint Eastwood’s next film Juror #2.
Juror #2 will center on a family man Justin Kemp, who finds himself struggling with a serious moral dilemma while serving as a juror in a high-profile murder trial. His decision has the power to sway the jury verdict and potentially convict or free the wrong killer.
Basso will play the man on trial, and he’ll be in pretty good company on the set of Clint Eastwood’s next film. The star-studded cast of this project also includes Nicholas Hoult, Toni Collette, Zoey Deutch, and Kiefer Sutherland, while Eastwood is directing and producing the film from Jonathan Abrams’ script.
Basso got his big break with a recent lead role in Netflix’s The Night Agent, which became one of the streamer’s most-watched series ever after its strong debut. This action thriller was promptly renewed for a second season, but Basso is attached to several more projects, including Trigger Warning co-starring Jessica Alba, and Renny Harlin’s reboot of The Strangers, set to feature three films.
