The Rock’s Snitch Adds Kanakaredes, Gavron and Velazquez

Rafi Gavron in Life Unexpected TV SeriesLooks like Ric Roman Waugh’s action thriller “Snitch” is in full casting mode, with the production recently adding the trio of Melina Kanakaredes, Rafi Gavron and Nadine Velazquez to its cast.

The three new faces join Dwayne The Rock Johnson, who will play a tough hombre of a father who agrees to be a snitch for the DEA in order to help reduce his wayward son’s 10-year jail sentence. Rafi Gavron (left), who has appeared in “24” and “Life Unexpected”, as well as the movie “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist”, will play the Rock’s son, while Melina Kanakaredes (“CSI: New York”) and Nadine Velazquez (“My Name is Earl”) will play the Rock’s ex-wife and current wife, respectively.

Besides Johnson in the lead, Waughn’s “Snitch” also has Susan Sarandon, Barry Pepper, “The Walking Dead’s” Jon Bernthal and Michael K. Williams mixing it up.

The whole thing is supposedly based on a true story, albeit a probably less action-packed story than the movie version. After all, it’s hard to believe you’d cast the Rock in a movie with drug dealers and undercover work and turn it into some actionless drama. What would be the point of that?
