The Spanish actor has been cast as the enigmatic marksman Cougar in "The Losers"

Jaenadas' biggest movie to date is "Che: Part 2", but this role could rocket him to superstardom as Cougar is arguably the most popular character in the comic.



He joins an allstar cast which now looks like this:

Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Clay
Idris Elba as Roque
Chris Evans as Jensen
Columbus Short as Pooch
Zoe Saldana as Aisha
Jason Patric as the villain, Max



For those of you unfamiliar with the comic, its about a band of black ops commandos who are set up to be killed by their own government. They barely survive and set out to get even. Yes, im aware of how much it sounds like The A-Team! But its a great action comic and should hopefully make a great action movie.

Warner Bros is set to release the movie in 2011. Its being directed by Sylvain White('Stomp The Yard") who is also slated to direct adaptations of Frank Millers "Ronin" and the videogame "Castlevania".

FIRST off, ; ) This is WARNERS right (?) So its gonna be sweet! I think alot of DC is turning GOLD an this will be no different, as long as they keep to the spirit of the Vertigo title they can't go far wrong!!!

Second, its way better than the A-TEAM! I ain't afraid to fly! : D

I have a feeling this will end up to be a sleeper hit, especially with the cast involved!
I'm optomistic.

I hadnt heard of it either until the movie was announced! But its well worth a read..lots of violence and carnage! Plus with that cast, it should be something to keep an eye on.

heard of it..just never bothered to pick it up when comic shoping, lol

I use to stay away from alot of DC Virtigo titles when they first came out. As I got older, I do say I like good stories vs certain art styles.

Hey, I am just glad to hear there will be a Ronin movie. That is one of my favorite Frank Miller stories. Just hope it doesnt look like Sin City.

I have heard of him, he's quite famous in Spain. He starred as Camarón de la Isla (the most famous flamenco singer of all time along with Paco de Lucía) in "Camarón" and as a terrorist in "Todos estamos invitados". I haven't seen Camarón, but he was fine in the other film. He has made more roles, but these are the most known.

I heard of it and read it as it was coming out. Cougar is my favorite character and I like Jaenada for the role.
