This Colombian/Puerto Rican actor first came to our attention as Miguel Cadenas in the NBC mini-series Kingpin. The appearance caught viewers’ attention and Arias went on to appear in such acclaimed series as The Shield, CSI and Revenge. Yet despite turning solid performances, film work hasn’t been as steady as one would expect from such a talent. Despite this, Arias continues the grind. In 2014 he appeared in the of biopic Chavez alongside Michael Peña. Next up is the long awaited Hands of Stone which will chronicle the relationship between boxing legend Roberto Duran and trainer Ray Arcel.
This New York City native, by way of Puerto Rico, is a veteran character actor who has a resume any actor would envy. He’s worked along-side Hollywood legends like DeNiro, Pacino, Robert Redford and Quentin Tarantino. Pulp Fiction, 21 Grams, King of New York and Bad Lieutenant are just a few of the films he’s lent his talents to. His small screen work is equally as impressive with turns in series such as Law & Order, Third Watch and Blue Bloods. We’ve noticed the great work, so how come Hollywood hasn’t?
