With the writers’ strike in full swing, the airing of new episodes of CSI: Miami is still left uncertain. However, fans can look forward to Adam Rodriguez‘s soon-to-be-released film before he reprises his role as Eric Delko in the forensic drama.
The CSI: Miami actor will be gracing the big screen as the character Diz in a war movie called Bohica. The project has already been completed and is expected to hit the theaters sometime this year.
Directed by D.J. Paul and written by Joseph “Bo” Colen, Bohica tells the story about four United States Army Reservists who are sent on a seemingly meaningless mission guarding a radio tower on a desolate area of a desert in an American-occupied Afghanistan. Struggling with boredom, the soldiers think of ways to entertain themselves with pranks, poker, and occasionally shooting at each other.
The monotony is broken when the Air Force mistakenly air-drops a keg of beer and a bottle of whisky. With no supervision, no responsibilities, and all that beer to go to waste, the four-weekend warriors build a bonfire, tap the keg, fill canteens, and swap stories over an inebriated afternoon of booze, banter, and bonding. But as night falls, the hard reality of war interrupts their drunken break, as enemies attack their station.
Although best known for his role on CSI: Miami, Rodriguez has also appeared on television shows such as Brooklyn South, Law & Order, Felicity, and NYPD Blue. Recently, he has been cast in films like Cielito lindo, Take, Christmas Break, and Let the Game Begin.
Joining the CSI: Miami actor in Bohica are Brendan Sexton III (Black Hawk Down, Boys Don’t Cry), Kevin Weisman (Moonlight, Alias), Nicholas Gonzalez (The O.C., Resurrection Blvd.), Tom Wright (Close to Home), and Matthew Del Negro (CSI: Miami, The Sopranos).
