His parents immigrated to southern Florida, in 1960, when Steven was three years old.
He is a graduate of Coral Park High School in Miami, Florida.
Was the original choice for the lead role of Kingpin (2003). He was replaced by Bobby Cannavale at the last minute.
"Bauer" is his mother's maiden name.
His big film break came with the substantial role of Manolo Ribera in Scarface (1983) even though he was a relatively unknown actor at the time. The producers were convinced that he was right for the role based on his strong audition, as well as his authentic Cuban background. His performance drew a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
In the early 1980s he moved to New York City and studied under famed acting guru Stella Adler, appearing on stage in occasional productions.
Originally intended to become a musician but turned to acting while attending Miami-Dade Community College. He then transferred to Theater Arts Department of the University of Miami.
Born Esteban Ernesto Echevarria in Havana, Cuba, the son of Lillian, a schoolteacher, and Esteban Echevarria, a pilot who worked for Cubana Airlines until the Cuban Revolution. Steven's maternal grandfather was a Jewish refugee from Germany and his stage surname comes from that side of his family.
Appears in the music video "Would I Lie to You" (1985) as Annie Lennox's motorcyclist boyfriend who drops the singer off at a Eurythmics gig. Bauer had just made an auspicious acting debut in Scarface (1983) as Al Pacino's buddy Manny.
He travels back and forth between homes in Los Angeles and Miami when he is not working. [August 2009]
