R&B Star Miguel Joins Cast Of Ben Affleck’s ‘Live By Night’!

Hollywood, Hollywood News

Grammy-winning R&B singer Miguel has joined the cast of Live By Night, Warner Bros’ Prohibition-era crime drama based on the Dennis Lehane novel that Ben Affleck is starring in, writing and directing.

 Live By Night uses some of the characters from Lehane’s sprawling period novel The Given Day and brings them into Prohibition. The focus is Joe Coughlin (Affleck), the black-sheep son of a police captain who gets involved in escalating levels of organized crime. Sienna Miller, Elle Fanning, Chris Messina and Zoe Saldana are among those already aboard. Miguel will play Esteban, the brother of Saldana’s character, Graciella Suarez, a woman Coughlin meets as he becomes involved in organized crime in Tampa.

Affleck temporarily has put aside plans for Live By Night to play the Caped Crusader in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. (The studio currently has it undated 2017 after bowing out of a October 7, 2016, release slot). Affleck also is producing through his Pearl Street, along with Jennifer Davisson, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Todd.

Miguel is next up as a featured performer on Shining A Light: A Concert For Progress On Race In America, the A+E Networks-iHeartMedia special to air November 20 followed by a worldwide rollout. It will be recorded at LA’s Shrine Auditorium on November 18. Earlier this year he was in negotiations to star in an untitled musical romantic drama from John Legend’s Get Lifted Film Co., Furst Films and IM Global.
