Natalie Morales Joins Denzel Washington and Raimi Malek in The Little Things
Deadline is reporting that Natalie Morales has joined Denzel Washington (Fences, Training Day), Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody) and Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club, Suicide Squad, Blade Runner 2049) in the Warner Bros. thriller The Little Things. The actress is set to play a Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department detective who works with the Washington and Malek to find Leto’s serial killer.
The Little Things follows a burned-out Kern County, Calif. deputy sheriff named Deke (Washington) who teams with Baxter, a crack LASD detective (Malek), to reel in a wily serial killer. Deke’s nose for the “little things” proves eerily accurate, but his willingness to circumvent the rules embroils Baxter in a soul-shattering dilemma. Meanwhile, Deke must wrestle with a dark secret from his past.
John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side, The Highwaymen) is writing and directing the film.
Morales appeared in the popular TV comedy Parks & Recreation and played the title character in the NBC series Abby. She also appeared in Fox’s Stuber and The Grinder.
