Underappreciated Actor of Another Color #3: Jay Hernandez

He was the only reason I bothered to see Crazy/Beautiful.  He was the second reason I went to see Hostel.  He's the main reason I'm debating whether or not to rent Carlito's Way: Rise to Power.

If you're wondering why the picture's kinda big, it's 'cause Jay Hernandez (born Javier Manuel Hernandez, by the way) is my only actor so far who's got a shirtless pic...while he's in the shower.

Ain't no way I was passin' that up, feel me?

So Jay's stayed pretty busy since he's early stints on TV and in bad films, but this too-fine Latino man is 32 and I think Hollywood should have given him more starring roles in the big flicks than just supporting roles. I mean, after roughing it during his first forays into the industry, his career started to take off when he was discovered while riding an elevator.  Does that even surprise any of you?

What I don't get is, what casting agent took a look at him and said, "You know what?  Naaah.  Just not what we're looking for."

Uh...not what who's looking for?

    I followed your link from the swpd thread about the "non-terrorist" terrorist. I knew your name looked familiar. I'm reading your Into the Valley fic!
