Want a real life example of a DashingHispanic? Antonio is your man. He began his acting career at age 19 with a series of films by director PedroAlmodovar. He is well-known for playing Franchise/{{Zorro}} in ''TheMaskOfZorro'' and its sequel ''Legend Of Zorro''.

Kids are more likely to remember him as Puss-In-Boots in ''{{Shrek}}'' (effectively Zorro as a cat) and Gregorio Cortez in ''SpyKids''.

He is notably less typecast in Spain, where he is considered a very versatile leading man (thanks to that stint under Almodovar).

And he sings. Beautifully.

!!Notable Filmography

* ''Assassins'' - Miguel Bain
* ''{{Evita}}'' - Che: [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeVilified Revolutionary]], [[FramingDevice narrator]], not-really-{{Expy}} of ''that' Che.
* ''{{Interview with the Vampire}}'' - Armand. Portrayed in the film as an adult rather than a youth, so as not to give the impression that Louis [[{{Ephebophile}} likes 'em]] [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld young]].
* ''Film/{{Philadelphia}}'' - Miguel Alvarez
* ''{{Desperado}}'' and ''OnceUponATimeInMexico'' - El Mariachi
* ''TheMaskOfZorro'' and ''TheLegendOfZorro'' - Alejandro Murietta, the new Franchise/{{Zorro}}.
* ''SpyKids'' - Gregorio Cortez, HotDad to the main kids and part of the BadassFamily.
* ''Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!'' (Spanish: ¡Átame!)- a 1990 Spanish dark romantic comedy film written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar. The plot follows a recently released psychiatric patient who kidnaps an actress in order to make her fall in love with him. He believes his destiny is to marry her and father her children. This is the role that brought Banderas to the attention of Hollywood.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' - Puss In Boots, [[PuppyDogEyes adorable]] kitty and [[HitmanWithAHeart hired assassin]] who winds up [[IOweYouMyLife traveling with Shrek and Donkey]].
** ''WesternAnimation/PussInBoots'' - Guess who?
* ''{{The 13th Warrior}}'' - Ahmad ibn Fadlan, [[NonActionGuy Non-Action Guy]] turned BadassBookworm off to defeat [[Literature/{{Beowulf}} Grendel]]... Er, cannibal Neanderthals with Vikings.
* ''WomenOnTheVergeOfANervousBreakdown'' - His most interesting role under Almodovar. In a role directly contrary to his Hollywood typecasting as a DashingHispanic or {{Badass}}, he plays a milquetoast [[HenpeckedHusband henpecked fiance]] who happens to be the son of the main character's ex-lover. It's weird.
