Daytime favorite A Martinez (ex-Eduardo Hernandez, Days of our Lives; ex-Dr. Ramon Montgomery, The Bold and the Beautiful, ex-Roy DiLucca, General Hospital; ex-Ray Montez, One Life to Live) is thrilled to share that he'll be appearing in the heart-stopping action flick Ambulance.
The star took to Instagram with a photo of himself in his dressing room along with the caption, "Waiting to be called from my dressing room this weekend, as I wrap work on Michael Bay's movie, Ambulance. Mr. Bay treats us here to a thoroughly wild, bird's eye view, as two wounded, star-crossed brothers go for broke on the single day that will define their lives."
A remake of the popular 2005 Danish film of the same name, Ambulance stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as two thieves who rob an ambulance occupied by a paramedic (Eiza González) and a patient in critical condition.
Keir O'Donnell, Moses Ingram, and Garret Dillahunt (ex-Charlemagne Moody, OLTL) also star in the film directed by Bay, who's known for high-action films like Armageddon, Pearl Harbor, and the Transformers franchise.
Martinez's social media post also includes praise for the cast and crew's handling of the COVID-19 safety protocols. "It's been a notable achievement for this project to have made it to the finish line," he shares. "To say that these cautionary tactics have made the always challenging process of shooting a movie even more difficult than it usually is, would be a gross understatement. But the extra effort has been a small price to pay in the grand scheme of things, and my spirit is coming to rest today with a sense of both joy and relief."
The actor signed off with, "Hope you'll enjoy this most compelling story when the chance arrives."
Ambulance is currently slated for a February 18, 2022, release.
Martinez is known for playing Eduardo Hernandez on Days of our Lives, Dr. Ramon Montgomery on The Bold and the Beautiful, Ray Montez on One Life to Live, Roy DiLucca on General Hospital, and Cruz Castillo on Santa Barbara. Some of his other credits include Longmire, Queen of the South, The Bay, For the People, and Profiler.
It's been a busy week for past and present soap stars landing non-soap roles: General Hospital's Maurice Benard has been tapped to play a real-life mobster; Y&R alum Sofia Pernas landed a role in the ABC comedy pilot Adopted; All My Children's Michael B. Jordan will make his directorial debut with the film Creed III; and B&B's Gina Rodriguez has not one but two upcoming Netflix projects.
