Here’s how the Arrow version of the character is described:
A hardened ex-con recently released from prison for crimes he didn’t commit, Ricardo Diaz (Acevedo) is bent on taking over Star City’s criminal underworld. A master in hand to hand combat, honed by years of life on the street, Diaz has yet to meet a foe he can’t take down.
Acevedo’s other credits include Fringe, 12 Monkeys, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Kingdom.
