Ruiz, however, has a more laid-back and amiable personality and knows how to navigate the complicated arena of Mexican law enforcement while maintaining his integrity doing his job.
Oscar nominee Bichir delivers a charismatic and dynamic performance as Ruiz, and Kruger is also fascinating to watch in her portrayal of Cross, whose father-daughter-like work relationship with her boss, Lt. Hank Wade (Ted Levine), is endearing.
Annabeth Gish, Thomas M. Wright and Matthew Lillard are also among the cast of this absorbing and adept series.
“The Bridge” debuts at 9 p.m. Wednesday, July 10, on FX.
