Following his appearances in “The Simpsons,” The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Mystery Men, and several Jim Jarmusch films, Tom Waits’ latest acting gig has been revealed. He’ll star in a Hulu supernatural drama called “Citizen,” Deadline reports. The show from director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) is described as a hero’s origin story with elements of both “magical realism” and “gritty vigilantism.” Waits plays Cesar, a priest whose guerrilla humanitarian operation is legally dubious.
