TAKERS

JAY HERNANDEZ (Eddie Hatcher) emerged on the Hollywood scene by starring with Kirsten Dunst in the 2001 drama Crazy/Beautiful, which earned the actor an ALMA Award nomination. He then followed with the sleeper hit The Rookie, opposite Dennis Quaid; Joseph Kahn's Torque, with Ice Cube; Ladder 49, with Joaquin Phoenix; and Friday Night Lights, with Billy Bob Thornton. 

Hernandez was recently seen in the family drama Nothing Like the Holidays, starring alongside John Leguizamo, Alfred Molina, Freddy Rodriguez and Debra Messing. He also appeared in the horror film Quarantine, opposite Jennifer Carpenter and Columbus Short, and Neil Labute's provocative thriller Lakeview Terrace, with Samuel L. Jackson and Patrick Wilson.

In 2006, Hernandez starred alongside Nicolas Cage and Michael Peña in the acclaimed Oliver Stone drama World Trade Center. The story follows three New York City Port Authority officers (Cage, Peña, and Hernandez) who volunteered to enter the World Trade Center after the planes were flown into the towers on September 11, 2001. 

Hernandez starred in the disturbing psychological thriller Hostel, from writer/director Eli Roth and executive producer Quentin Tarantino. Premiering at the 2005 Toronto Film Festival to rave reviews, the film opened #1 at the box office and earned Hernandez a Teen Choice Award nomination. 

Hernandez also made his mark on television in the acclaimed, if short-lived, J.J. Abrams drama "Six Degrees,” for ABC. 

Hernandez's career began with a serendipitous experience. While riding an elevator in a high-rise building in his native Los Angeles, he was approached by a talent manager who suggested Hernandez had what it takes to have a successful career in Hollywood. Today, Hernandez is 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 currently resides in Los Angeles.
