  • Badass Baritone: He speaks in particularly badass one.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: He has a very deep voice and almost always plays bad guys.
  • Fake Nationality: You can count on one hand the number of times he's played a Venezuelan. In particular, he's cast as Russians due to his fluency in the language and impeccable accent. He also played a Colombian terrorist in Toy Soldiers
  • Fake Russian: His go to role. Something of a subversion in that his father was Russian and he's fluent in the language.
  • Latino Is Brown: He's almost never cast as Latino characters, likely due in part to this trope.
  • No Stunt Double: Frequently does his own stuntwork.
  • Omniglot: He speaks eight languages, and used to speak nine (Romanian, which he forgot when he had no one to speak it with).
