Bronx-born Puerto Rican-Chinese hunk Kirk Acevedo got a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the State University of New York at Purchase before he launched his acting career by founded the small theater company The Rorschach Group. You can make suggestively shaped stains on us anytime you want to, Kirk!
Soon Kirk left the stage for the small screen and in 1996 he appeared in the made for TV movie The Sunshine Boys. Soon after that, Kirk was guest starring on shows like the gritty cop drama New York Undercover and the long-running police procedural and courtroom drama Law & Order and starring in the World War II mini-series Band of Brothers. Kirk also did some movie work, winning an ALMA for his performance in The Thin Red Line (1998), and lending his talents to movies like Boiler Room (2000), In the Weeds (2000), and Bait (2000). Hey, we’ll bite!
But Kirk is best known for playing hardened (you better believe it!) convict Miguel Alvarez on OZ, HBO’s man meat-filled prison drama that makes the big house look like the world’s greatest sausage party. Hey Kirk, throw away the key, because we’re ready to do some hard time with you!
