In his first leading role, Bobby Soto stars with Shia LaBeouf in David Ayer's (SUICIDE SQUAD, END OF WATCH) THE TAX COLLECTOR, a crime thriller set in the hood of Los Angeles.

Watch below what Soto had to say about working with the quirky actor, and his interesting story of how he met the director and coming from the same barrio.
In Ayer's THE TAX COLLECTOR, David (Soto) and Creeper (LaBeouf) are the "tax collectors" for a crime lord named Wizard in Los Angeles. They collect local taxes from local gang's activities, and live it up in style until an old rival played by Jose Martin aka Chicano rapper Conejo returns from Mexico to claim his territory.
