biography of Hernandez, Jay (I)

Javier Manuel Hernandez Jr.
20 February 1978, Montebello, California, USA
174 cm
A rising talent with the requisite good looks and plenty of on-screen charisma, Jay Hernandez had one of those serendipitous experiences that led to his career. While riding an elevator in a high-rise in his native Los Angeles, the young man was approached by talent manager Howard Tyner, who suggested Hernandez had what it took to have a successful career in Hollywood. In 1998, he made his TV series debut as "Antonio Lopez", one of the high school basketball players in the NBC Saturday morning teen sitcom, _"Hang Time" (1995)_ (qv), and stayed with the show for two seasons. Departing NBC, Hernandez moved to MTV with the short-term role of pizza delivery guy "Eddie" on the popular late-night serial, _"Undressed" (1999)_ (qv), before segueing to the big screen. In 2001, Hernandez co-starred with 'Kirsten Dunst' (qv) in the teen romance, _Crazy/Beautiful (2001)_ (qv), portraying stalwart, straight-A high school student "Carlos Nunez", whose plans to attend the US Naval Academy are threatened by his growing attraction to a self-destructive rich girl, ('Kirsten Dunst' (qv)). He next appeared in Disney's surprise hit film, _The Rookie (2002)_ (qv), as high school baseball team captain Joaquin "Wack" Campos. He also had a supporting role in the video-game-ish actioner, _Torque (2004)_ (qv). Also in 2004, he was in the action-packed drama, _Ladder 49 (2004)_ (qv), as "Keith Perez", and in the other action-packed drama, _Friday Night Lights (2004)_ (qv). In 2006, he next starred in 'Eli Roth' (qv)'s _Hostel (2005)_ (qv), a brutal horror flick about two American college buddies (Hernandez and 'Derek Richardson (I)' (qv)) lured to an out-of-the-way hostel in a Slovakian town rumored to house desperate, but beautiful Eastern European women. Following their wrong heads, both Americans get trapped in a truly sinister situation that plunges them into the dark recesses of human nature.

-   "It was cool to be around that many Latinos, because when I'm on set it's usually white or whatever. It's no big deal, but to be around Mexicans and Latins, it's a little bit closer to family, more camaraderie. It's a different feeling, and it was cool to see that, and to realize that there actually is a part of Hollywood that is Latin" - referring to the set of _"American Family" (2002)_ (qv).

-   When I first started, there was nothing. There were no Latin roles, and that's the only thing that they'll see you as unless you can convince them otherwise,
