He has garnered critical acclaim for his roles in such films as I Like It Like That (1994), The Sunchaser (1996), Selena (1997), Undisputed (2002), and in television for his roles in Homicide: Life on the Street (1993), UC: Undercover (2001), Third Watch (1999), Oz (1997) and most recently his lead role as Marine Sgt. John "Manila" Basilone in HBO's award-winning mini series The Pacific (2010).

Personal Quotes (1)

I ran into a couple of guys who were boxers. They talked me into working out at their gym. I became obsessed with boxing and the idea of becoming a champion. I was hoping to compete in the 1992 Olympics . . . but I got a lead [acting]. Suddenly I was making more money than I ever dreamed possible, so I decided to pursue the acting route. It certainly was easier on my face and body.
