Actor Spenser Granese joined Fear the Walking Dead during its seventh season as Arnold, a member of Teddy Maddox's (John Glover) doomsday cult. Deadline reports that his next project will be the 80s action thriller Stone Cold Fox.

The film is the directorial debut of Sophie Tabet who co-wrote the movie with Julia Roth. Bee Hive's Stephen Braun (Sacramento) produces with Tabet, Roth, The Wonder Company’s Eric B. Fleischman and Chris Abernathy (Sacramento), and Jonathan Craven (The Hills Have Eyes 2). Joe Roth (Anyone But You) serves as executive producer.

Granese joins previously announced Kiernan Shipka, Kiefer Sutherland, Krysten Ritter, Lorenza Izzo, Jamie Chung, Karen Fukuhara, and more recently announced Gabrielle Maiden.

Stone Cold Fox is a revenge story that follows the defiant Fox (Shipka), who begins the search for her family after breaking away from an abusive commune. Fox is given no choice but to sneak back into the commune when the queenpin, Goldie (Ritter), abducts her younger sister and sends a crooked cop (Sutherland) in search of her.

Granese portrays Ricky, a man who loves his own laugh and is the right-hand man to the villainous Goldie. He does her bidding when she instructs him to abduct Fox's sister, bringing her to the unsavory commune as commanded.

In Fear the Walking Dead, Granese portrayed Arnold (Arno), who would become a villain before his death. After the doomsday cult's bunker was emptied, he started a group called the Stalkers. This would prove a mistake when he lies to Daniel Salazar (Ruben Blades), who lowers Arno into a pit of walkers who devour his legs. He is pulled out of the pit but dies because of his injuries.

Granese has several upcoming roles, including Alonso Ruizpalacios’ drama La Cocina, a story that follows kitchen workers in a New York City restaurant where diverse cultures blend during the lunchtime rush. He will appear in the AppleTV+ crime drama Sinking Spring from Ridley Scott and Peter Craig. This story features longtime friends who pose as DEA agents to rob a house in a remote area. Little did they know that they would uncover one of the most significant hidden narcotics corridors on the Eastern seaboard. He also appears in Little Death, Jack Begert's debut feature.

Recently, Granese has also appeared in Law & Order: SVU, Barry, Mayans M.C., and A Man Called Otto.
