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 ''WesternAnimation/IceAge'' animated movies.

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

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