The Sci Fi Channel's new miniseries The Triangle has enlisted Lou Diamond Phillips to play the part of Meeno Paloma, a Greenpeace expedition leader who encounters a dangerous mystery in the Bermuda Triangle. Meeno teams up with other professionals to investigate the strange and deadly force.

Phillips' breakout role was that of doomed singer Richie Valens in the 1987 movie La Bamba. Since then, he has appeared in many popular movies and television shows, which most recently include 24 and Jack & Bobby. He has been honored with a Golden Globe nomination and a 1989 Independent Spirit Award for his work in Stand and Deliver.

The Triangle is shooting in Cape Town, South Africa. In addition to Phillips, the cast will include Eric Stoltz, Catherine Bell, Bruce Davidson, Sam Neill, and Michael Rodgers.

    I love Lou Diamond Phillips and also think he is overlooked as being one of movies and tv's great actors and should be more appreciated by the movie industry.

    My favorite Lou Diamond Phillips acting performance was in the 1996 movie, Courage Under Fire (Monfriez). Such a good role for him I think. He has had some very good character parts, but no big budget starring roles since La Bamba (1987). It would have been nice to see him get some bigger and better roles throughout the years.

    I'm happy to see him continue to work, but he'll never outshine his career-topping performance as Bobby Diaz on Miami Vice...
