'Graceland's' Manny Montana Joins Michael Mann's 'Cyber' (Exclusive)

The star of the USA drama joins the thriller with Chris Hemsworth and Viola Davis

Manny Montana, star of USA Network's new series, "Graceland," just booked a supporting role on producer and director Michael Mann's "Cyber," TheWrap has learned exclusively.

An insider with knowledge of the project told us that the production is guarding the movie's script  — we hear some of its actors haven't even been able to read it. All we were able to learn about Montana's role is that he plays Lozano, a "wanted criminal."

Montana plays FBI agent Joe "Johnny" Turturro on "Graceland," which premieres next Thursday. Previously, he has appeared on "CSI: NY," "The Chicago Code," "Breakout Kings" and starred in the 2008 film "East L.A."

Starring "Avengers" actor Chris Hemsworth, "The Help's" Viola Davis and popular Chinese actors Wei Tang and Leehom Wang, "Cyber" began shooting earlier this week in Los Angeles.

It is also slated to shoot in Hong Kong, another example of the increasing partnerships between Hollywood and China.

The Legendary Pictures movie revolves around American and Chinese authorities that join together to take down a high-level computer hacking operation.

"Cyber" is Mann's biggest project since executive producing HBO's canceled horse race drama, "Luck," and the miniseries, "Witness."

Montana is represented by Trademark Talent.
