Edward James Olmos Postponed sq(ELGIN IL April 5, 2022) The World Leaders Forum Inspirational Series featuring Actor Edward James Olmos has been postponed due a last-minute filming schedule conflict. The event, initially scheduled for Friday, April 8, has been rescheduled for August.

Mexican-American actor, director, producer and activist Edward James Olmos will speak on the Judson University campus in Elgin. Olmos is best known for his roles as Lieutenant Martin “Marty” Castillo in “Miami Vice” (1984–1989).
