Edward James Olmos To Portray Gaff In Blade Runner 2049
A veteran of both stage and screen, Olmos has made a name for himself as one of the most talented thespians of his time. First coming to prominence as the narrator of both stage and film versions of Zoot Suit, the actor went on to play major roles in such noteworthy projects as Miami Vice, Selena, and the 2004 re-imagining of Battlestar Galactica.
Of course, he is also known for portraying the detective companion of Harrison Ford‘s Rick Deckard in the original Blade Runner. Although Olmos says that he has only one scene in the long-awaited sequel, he describes it as a “poignant, little” one.

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos.

Directed by Denis Villeneuve, Blade Runner 2049 arrives in theaters on October 6, 2017. The film aso stars Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James, with Dave Bautista and Jared Leto.
