JAY HERNANDEZ (Javier Villareal) first emerged on the Hollywood scene opposite Kirsten Dunst in the 2001 film Crazy/Beautiful. Since then, Hernandez has starred in a number of films, including Disney's sleeper hit The Rookie, opposite Dennis Quaid; Joseph Kahn's Torque, with Ice Cube; Ladder 49, with Joaquin Phoenix and John Travolta; and Friday Night Lights, with Billy Bob Thornton. He was recently seen on the big screen in the acclaimed Oliver Stone 9/11 project, World Trade Center, and the indie mockumentary Live! with Eva Mendes. 

Hernandez was born and raised in Montebello, California with his two older brothers and younger sister. Unlike many of his contemporaries, he didn't grow up with the dream of moving to Hollywood to become an actor. As clichéd as it sounds, at the age of 18, Hernandez was discovered in an elevator by a talent manage. In a short time, his career has blossomed exponentially; it has been only seven years since his first acting role on the popular Saturday-morning television show "Hang Time,” where he began his career alongside Anthony Anderson (Hustle & Flow). Hernandez is now noted as one of the few Latino leading men in the entertainment industry and has had the honor of working with some of the most in-demand writers, directors, producers and actors of his time.

Hernandez starred in the disturbing psychological thriller Hostel, from writer/director Eli Roth and executive producer Quentin Tarantino. The film premiered at the 2005 Toronto Film Festival to rave reviews and opened #1 at the box office. He had a brief cameo appearance in the sequel, Hostel 2.

The actor has also made his mark on television in the acclaimed if short-lived ABC drama from J.J. Abrams, "Six Degrees.” 

Hernandez currently resides in Los Angeles.
