Charlie Hunnam to Play Mexican Drug Lord 'La Barbie'

Charlie Hunnam rocks jeans and a hoodie while out running errands and picking up some furniture on Sunday afternoon (January 31) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 35-year-old actor was joined for the outing by his girlfriend Morgana McNelis.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Charlie was recently cast as the lead role in American Drug Lord, a film based on the life of Mexican-American drug lord, Edgar Valdez Villarreal (aka “La Barbie”).

Given the diversity issue with the Oscars this year, people on social media are seemingly upset that a white actor was cast in the role.
