I think Gabriel Luna is a really solid pick for Tommy. He was one of the few good parts of Dark Fate. A lot of people were complaining that he looks nothing like Tommy, and that Joel “shouldn’t have a Mexican brother.” First of all Diego Luna is from Austin, TX (just like Tommy!) and second, Pedro Pascal, who plays Joel, is Chileno.

He’s a good choice for Tommy.
