Jorge Lendeborg Jr.

Jorge Lendeborg Jr. is having a major breakthrough in his career. Having only just earned his first screen acting credit on an episode of Graceland in 2014, Lendeborg has gone on to land a role in SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING and is moving on from the SPIDER-MAN movie right into the Robert Rodriguez / James Cameron collaboration ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL.

Rodriguez is directing and Cameron is producing the manga adaptation, which is set in the 26th century and follows 

a female cyborg that is discovered in a scrap yard by a scientist. With no memory of her previous life except her deadly martial-arts training, the woman becomes a bounty hunter, tracking down criminals.

Lendeborg is joining a cast that includes Rosa Salazar as the cyborg Alita, Christoph Waltz as her mentor, Keean Johnson as her love interest, Jackie Earle Haley and Ed Skrein as villainous cyborgs, Eiza González as an unspecified character, and Mahershala Ali as a man who runs a gladiator-style combat game called Motorball. 

Lendeborg will be playing a "cunning and sly friend" of Johnson's character.

ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL starts filming in Austin, Texas this month, aiming at a July 20, 2018 release.
