Emmy-winning actor A Martinez (Longmire, Queen of the South, L.A. Law) is in the highly anticipated new Netflix series“Cowboy Bebop,” as Mr. Stax, which will be out globally on November 19th. Up next, Martinez is not slowing down, with a plum role opposite Jake Gyllenhaal in the Michael Bay film AMBULANCE out on February 18, 2022, and another season of the Emmy award winning Amazon digital series “The Bay,” out soon.
Cowboy Bebop is an action-packed space Western about three bounty hunters, aka “cowboys,” all trying to outrun the past. As different as they are deadly, Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) form a scrappy, snarky crew ready to hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals – for the right price. But they can only kick and quip their way out of so many scuffles before their pasts finally catch up with them.
Martinez’s career is hotter than ever. With over 50 years of acting credits to his name, A has had countless memorable roles including starring roles on “Santa Barbara,” “General Hospital,” “One Life to Live,” “L.A. Law,” “Profiler,” “Longmire,” and most recently “Queen of the South,” on USA Network. He’s also starred in several feature films including THE COWBOYS opposite John Wayne and Sundance Grand Jury Prize winning film POWWOW HIGHWAY and WIND RIVER just to name a few of his incredibly long list of credits.
The LA-native and Daytime Emmy Award winner is passionate about Indigenous people’s rights and journeyed to Standing Rock with Democracy Now in 2016 to help protest the oil pipeline being built on Native land. A continues to honor his Mexican & Native American heritage in both his advocacy work and the roles he’s playing on screen.
