Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

When the Coens called [about casting him in No Country for Old Men (2007)], I said, "Listen, I'm the wrong actor. I don't drive, I speak bad English, and I hate violence". They laughed and said, "Maybe that's why we called you". See more »

Trivia:

Javier's original interest was in painting, and he studied at Madrid's Escuela de Artes y Oficios. Eventually, deciding he'd never be a talented painter, he drifted into a number of odd jobs, working as a bouncer, a writer, a construction worker, and even a stripper. See more »

Trademark:

Deep gruff voice

Star Sign:

Pisces
