The second season of cult U.S. Tv drama The Bridge will be a family affair as Demian Bichir's actor brother Bruno has joined the cast.

Bruno will appear as a wealthy Mexican businessman in multiple episodes of the critically acclaimed series, which is set in and around the border towns of Mexico and Texas.

It is not the first time the Bichir brothers have worked together - Oscar nominee Demian and Bruno also teamed up for the movies Don't Tempt Me and Sin noticias de Dios (Bendito infierno).

Bruno says, "I couldn't be happier to work again with my brother Demian. I'm a huge fan of the show so it's an enormous honour for me to become a part of it."
