Another Reason to Watch Sunday's Republic of Doyle: Luis Guzman


He's a go-to guy for directors like Steven Soderbergh and P.T. Anderson, and if you watch NBC's Community, he's the most esteemed alum of Greendale College, the only "moderately famous comedic character actor" to walk its halls.

This Sunday, though, Luis Guzman joins the Republic of Doyle.

If you're a true "Doylie" - that's what fans are calling themselves, right? - you first heard about Guzman's guest spot last fall.

That's him on set in this behind-the-scenes video posted in November:

And in Sunday's Doyle adventure, Guzman brings the drama - taking Leslie (Krystin Pellerin), Des (Mark O'Brien), Jake (Allan Hawco) and basically everyone else at the police station hostage.

In real-life, though, Guzman is a "big sweetheart," says Hawco.

Talking to the Huffington Post last fall, Hawco chatted about hanging out with Guzman in St. John's. (Apparently, he even fixed him brunch this one time.) "Luis made me the best omelet I may have ever had. He's just that kind of guy. He's so chill."

Who knew? We should have added that bit of random trivia to our CBC Guest Stars Quiz.

(BTW, you should play our CBC Guest Stars Quiz.)

To find out whether Guzman survives the hostage taking so that he can live and add another 120+ entries to his IMDB page, tune in to Republic of Doyle Sunday at 9 p.m./9:30 NT. It's your last shot of Doyle before the two-part season finale.
