JAY HERNANDEZ (Dominick Pezzulo) first earned critical attention opposite Kirsten Dunst in the 2001 film "crazy/beautiful.” Since then, Hernandez has starred in a number of films, including the sleeper hit "The Rookie,” opposite Dennis Quaid, Joseph Kahn's "Torque” with Ice Cube, and "Ladder 49” with Joaquin Phoenix and John Travolta.

In the fall of 2004, Hernandez was seen in "Friday Night Lights” with Billy Bob Thornton. The film, based on true events, profiles the economically depressed town of Odessa, Texas and their heroic high school football team. Hernandez also recently completed production on the historical epic "Nomad,” an independent feature set in 18th-century Kazakhstan, which debuted in Cannes and will be distributed by the Weinstein Company. Hernandez was most recently seen in the disturbing psychological thriller "Hostel,” the latest project from writer/director Eli Roth and executive producer Quentin Tarantino. Premiering last September at the Toronto Film Festival to rave reviews, the film opened #1 at the box office in January.

In September, he will star in the latest television project from J.J. Abrams ("Alias,” "Lost”) for ABC, the drama "Six Degrees.” Hernandez also narrates the story, which follows a group of men and women (Hope Davis, Erika Christensen, Bridget Moynahan, Campbell Scott, and Dorian Missick) in New York City as their lives intertwine.

Unlike many of his contemporaries, Hernandez didn't grow up with the dream of moving to Hollywood to become an actor. Born and raised in Montebello, California with his two older brothers and younger sister, as clichéd as it sounds, Hernandez was discovered in an elevator by a talent manager when he was 18 years old.
