Justin Johnson Cortez is headed to Walker! Justin plays Calian on Walker: Independence, the prequel to Walker, which premiered earlier this year on The CW, and now he’s headed to the original show.
Deadline reports that Justin will be playing a potentially recurring character named Detective Sonny Alcala, who is “a shrewd Homicide Detective who got his start working closely with Cordell Walker (Jared Padalecki) and Captain James (Coby Bell) on a case years ago. The Detective initially calls Walker as a courtesy to let him know of a death relating to a case, but something doesn’t quite add up.”
With only 5 episodes remaining for Walker this season, we’re excited to see when Justin shows up!
Walker airs Thursdays at 8 pm EST on The CW. You can catch up with the newest episodes on The CW app the next day.
