‘Hit Man’ Star Adria Arjona Joins ‘Criminal’ Series at Amazon


Adria Arjona has joined the upcoming Amazon Prime Video series “Criminal,” Variety has learned.

Arjona is now the second confirmed cast member in the series, alongside the previously announced Richard Jenkins. “Criminal” is based on the graphic novels of the same name by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. The official description states that the series is “an interlocking universe of crime stories.”

Arjona will star as Greta. The character is described as “a sharp-tongued top-level car thief and driver and the widowed mother of Angie. Ever since her husband died in a bank job gone bad, Greta has been battling with herself about how to escape the only life she’s ever known – and the only place she’s ever thrived. The problem is, she’s good at this. She’s looking for a big score, a lump of money she can use like a gun to shoot her and Angie out of this life and into another one.”

Arjona can currently be seen in the Richard Linklater film “Hit Man” alongside Glen Powell. She is also set to appear in Zoe Kravitz’ upcoming directorial debut “Blink Twice.” Her other film credits include the 2022 reboot of “Father of the Bride,” “Morbius,” “Triple Frontier,” and “Six Underground.” In television, she led the NBC series “Emerald City” in 2017 and has also had roles in shows like “Andor,” “True Detective,” “Irma Vep,” “Good Omens,” and “Narcos.”

She is repped by CAA, Anonymous Content, The Lede Company and Goodman Genow.

Brubaker will serve as co-showrunner and executive producer on “Criminal” along with Jordan Harper. Phillips also executive produces, as does Sarah Carbiener, and Phillip Barnett. Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden will direct the first four episodes. Legendary Television will also serve as an executive producer. The series is produced by Amazon MGM Studios.
