El Mayimbe from Latino Review is reporting that Friday Night Lights star Jay Hernandez is playing El Diablo aka Chato Santana in David Ayer's Suicide Squad. He describes Hernandez's role as small. It will be just a cameo in the film. When we meet him he will be a "prisoner being held in the super-powered criminal part of the prison."
But that's not all! When we see that part of the prison El Diablo will be confined with other supervillains, like Killer Frost, Block Buster, King Shark and Live Wire.
