The Eastbound & Down/Shield alum stars as Soto, the “oddly charismatic” inspector leading the charge. While Soto’s tendency to obsessively fixate on things is a day-to-day struggle, his disorder helps him protect witnesses and makes him one of the most focused and purposeful investigators in the service.

Most frequently seen on the big screen, Peña’s other credits include End of Watch, Observe and Report and Crash.
