Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, the notorious drug lord whose violent reign of terror has devastated the Mexican border and led to a humanitarian crisis that has claimed the lives of nearly 4,000 people, is casting his eye on a leading role in the next installment of the Karate Kids franchise.

“I love acting,” Phoenix said during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
