The 1996 film FROM DUSK TILL DAWN is full of great characters, and Tom Savini's biker character Sex Machine becomes one of the most memorable immediately upon appearing on the screen, wielding a whip and packing an obscene-looking gun under his codpiece. Savini missed out on the first two seasons of El Rey Network's From Dusk Till Dawn television series and the role of Sex Machine was taken over by Jake Busey, but now he's finally joining the party.
Savini will be appearing alongside the show's returning cast members D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Eiza González, Jesse Garcia, Madison Davenport, Brandon Soo Hoo, Emily Rios, and Jake Busey in season three, which
continues the Gecko Brothers' saga, as they fight their way through the world of culebras, the vampire-snake hybrids that control hidden empires in Texas and Mexico. Once the baddest outlaws in the land, Seth and Richie made a run for the border two years ago, to save their lives - and their fortune. They ran headlong into a bar full of bloodsuckers and bandits, facing off with the vampire goddess, Santánico. The Geckos joined her cause and settled an old score. It won them a place in the culebra world. Now, that world is about to explode, and new enemies are gathering - dark forces, hell-bent on destruction and domination. It's up to the Geckos to stop them - but they can't do it alone.
Savini will be playing a character who sounds like he'll be a lot of fun: Burt, a retired demon hunter who smokes more medical marijuana than he sells.
Other new cast additions include Ana de la Reguera (pictured below) as Lord Venganza Verdugo, "one of the seven remaining culebra Lords whose ancient roots and personal history put them at the center of an epic clash between good and evil", and Marko Zaror as Zolo, "an Aztec warrior trained in Hell".
Currently in production in Albuquerque, New Mexico, From Dusk Till Dawn season 3 is set to run for ten episodes and will be premiering on El Rey later this year.
