Skateboarding TikTok star makes acting debut in 'Reservation Dogs'
Nathan Apodaca went viral on TikTok for a video of himself skateboarding while downing a jug of cranberry juice. Now he's turned his internet fame into a new career with a guest role on "Reservation Dogs."

LOS ANGELES -- A man who skated into the spotlight with a viral TikTok video has rolled into a new career in the TV world.

Remember Nathan Apodaca? He's the man who skateboarded his way to fame riding his board, drinking Ocean Spray cranberry juice and singing along to Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" in a viral TikTok video.

He's been able to take his fame and talent to the next level: he earned a guest spot on the Peabody Award-winning show "Reservation Dogs."

The comedy series is about four Native American teenagers who live on a tribal reservation in Oklahoma.

Apodaca, who is Northern Arapaho, thanked the cast in an Instagram post, saying they made his experience playing Uncle Charley like no other.

"FX's Reservation Dogs" airs Wednesdays, exclusively on Hulu.

The Walt Disney Company is the parent company of Hulu and this ABC station.
