Genesis Rodriguez Takes 'The Last Stand' With Arnold Schwarzenegger

With cameras now rolling, looks like there was one more part to cast in Arnold Schwarzenegger's "The Last Stand." Genesis Rodriguez may not be a familiar name just yet, but 2012 should change that. She raised eyebrows earlier in the year, appearing frequently undressed in the trailer for "Man On A Ledge," and with roles in the Will Ferrell comedy "Casa de mi Padre" and "What To Expect When You're Expecting." Her profile is set to rocket to those who haven't kept up with her travails on the Spanish language dramas "Doña Bárbara" and "Prisionera."

With cameras now rolling, looks like there was one more part to cast in Arnold Schwarzenegger's "The Last Stand." Genesis Rodriguez may not be a familiar name just yet, but 2012 should change that. She raised eyebrows earlier in the year, appearing frequently undressed in the trailer for "Man On A Ledge," and with roles in the Will Ferrell comedy "Casa de mi Padre" and "What To Expect When You're Expecting." Her profile is set to rocket to those who haven't kept up with her travails on the Spanish language dramas "Doña Bárbara" and "Prisionera."

Variety reports she's joined Kim Ji-woon's Hollywood debut, lending a bit more estrogen to the testosterone-heavy cast. the story follows a disgraced LAPD cop (Arnie) in a new job in a small town, who is trying to stop a drug cartel leader, Cortez (Eduardo Noriega), who has just busted out of prison and is trying to make it across the border with $400 million bucks. Zach Gilford and Rodrigo Santoro are the team of cops on the small town force working with Ahnuld, and together they will team up against Peter Stormare who works for Cortez. Rodriguez will play an FBI agent (and though the trade says she's partnered with Noriega, that's an error, since he's a villain in the movie unless they've accidentally revealed some kind of twist). Johnny Knoxville, Forest Whitaker and the always awesome Harry Dean Stanton round out the cast.

Lensing is underway in New Mexico, and as big fans of the wickedly grim "I Saw The Devil," we're looking forward to this. "The Last Stand" hits on January 18, 2013.
