Antonio Banderas to play Picasso in ‘Genius’ Season 2
    2017-September-8  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

ACTOR Antonio Banderas is heading to the small screen.

The “Evita” and “Mask of Zorro” star has been tapped to topline the second season of National Geographic scripted anthology “Genius.” Banderas will make his series regular TV debut in the drama and play the leading role of Pablo Picasso.

Production on the 10-episode second season of “Genius” begins in the fall for a 2018 bow. The sophomore season will chronicle the life and work of the Spanish painter, one of the 20th century’s most influential and celebrated artists.

“The life story of Pablo Picasso has long since fascinated me and I have so much respect for this man, who also comes from my birthplace Malaga,” said Banderas. “I am thrilled to work with National Geographic, Brian, Ron, Ken and the rest of the ‘Genius’ team to tell an authentic story of one of the most innovative painters in the world.”

The news comes as “Genius” is up for 10 Emmys, including best limited series and best actor in the category for star Geoffrey Rush (who portrayed Albert Einstein).

“Antonio was the natural choice. He, like Picasso, has a no-holds-barred approach to life that will add to the genuineness that we’re looking for,” Howard said. “He has such tremendous range as an actor, who I know will bring this brilliant and unconventional artist to life.”

Nat Geo executive VP Carolyn Bernstein said: “Not only are they both from Malaga, Spain, but also similar to Picasso, Antonio exudes charisma and passion, and has challenged boundaries with his creative artistry. He checks all the boxes for us and we couldn’t be more pleased to have him lead the series.”(SD-Agencies)
