Hispanic actor (Colombian, ''not'' half Puerto Rican as once believed, but anyway raised in the Bronx) best known for his movie and TV roles. Mostly a comedian but has done serious roles too.

His most famous role may be as '''Luigi''' in the Film/SuperMarioBros movie. Unless you count [[VoiceActor voice acting]], then he's probably more famous as the voice of '''Sid The Sloth''' in the IceAge animated movies.

Tends to [[{{Satire}} satirize]] his own Hispanic nature, as in his (most infamous) role as Pestario Vargas in "The Pest". Also plays [[CampGay 'flamboyant']] roles as in ToWongFooThanksForEverythingJulieNewmar.

His best role probably was as '''Benny Blanco''' in the film CarlitosWay.

In 2008, he received the RitaMoreno Award for Excellence from the Hispanic Organization of Latin Actors (HOLA).
