Sweet, shy Fez from That '70s Show and can-do, friendly children's hero Handy Manny are crossing over to the dark side.
Wilmer Valderrama is starring as the villainous crime lord Carlos in Robert Rodriguez's new television series From Dusk Till Dawn, showing on Saturday at SXSW in Austin.
"I stay in touch with everyone from my That '70s Show cast and they are so proud of me getting to do this," Valderrama, 34, tells PEOPLE from the Texas Film Awards hosted by the Austin Film Society. "They have known me since 1997, '98 and they know how obsessed I have been with everything that Robert [Rodriguez] has ever done."
