Who is Cisco?
Dennis Wojciechowski, a.k.a Cisco, is a private investigator working for defence attorneys. He is also a former and now unofficial member of the Road Saints Motor Cycle Club. He has never been in any trouble with the law.
The police even tried to connect him with drug crimes but were unsuccessful. He is from Milwaukee and rides a 1963 Harley Davidson Panhead. He is observant and thorough in his investigations. His appearance is intimidating, making him a good handler of his witnesses. Mickey hired him in 2007 for Trevor Eliott’s case.
The character of Cisco is played by an Australian-born actor Angus Sampson. In high school, he joined the drama department and started to appear in school plays. Through acting, he found his route and decided to dedicate his life to this profession. In the mid-’90s, after completing high school, he started auditioning for T.V. roles and soon enough, he landed a few minor guest spots in native Australian shows.
By the early 2000s, he started appearing in small roles in movies like “Fat Pizza” in 2003, “Footy Legends” in 2006, and “Rats and Cats” in 2007. His big break came in the year 2010 when he landed the role of Tucker in “Insidious”. Insidious was a low-budget horror movie that was a massive success at the box office, and he spawned his role in Insidious Chapters 2 and 3.
He got his biggest recognition in 2015 from the blockbuster “Mad Max: Fury Road” and T.V. Series” Fargo”.
