BENJAMIN BRATT's (Juan Carlos) diverse career has successfully spanned film and television for more than 20 years. In 2010, Bratt won Cinequest's Maverick Spirit Award for his work as producer and star of the San Francisco indie hit La Mission. Written and directed by his brother Peter Bratt, the locally produced film garnered much critical praise, winning a Best Indie Film nomination from the NAACP, a GLAAD award nomination, and multiple Imagen Awards, including two for Best Picture and Best Actor.
Bratt's distinguished film career includes the critically acclaimed films Pinero, for which he was lauded for
his striking, haunting, and "career defining" performance as the poet‐playwright‐actor Miguel PiĂ±ero; StevenSoderbergh's Traffic, which received five Academy AwardÂ® nominations and a Screen Actors Guild Award for
Ensemble Cast; and The Woodsman, a festival and critical favorite starring Kevin Bacon.
Television audiences perhaps best recognize Bratt from his Emmy‐nominated role as Detective Rey Curtis on NBC's long‐running drama "Law & Order". He recently starred in the A&E drama series "The Cleaner", for which he also served as producer. His portrayal of "extreme interventionist" William Banks garnered him the 2009 Alma Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series.
A veteran of more than 25 films, Bratt's other work of note includes Curtis Hansen's The River Wild
opposite Meryl Streep; Blood In, Blood Out for director Taylor Hackford; Clear and Present Danger opposite Harrison Ford; the beloved comedy Miss Congeniality with Sandra Bullock; and the theatrical adaptation of the acclaimed novel Love in the Time of Cholera, costarring Javier Bardem.
Currently, Bratt can be seen starring in the ABC drama "Private Practice", and in a recurring role as Sofia
Vergara's ne'er-do-well ex‐husband Javier on the smash hit "Modern Family".
2013 will see him starring in three new films: The Lesser Blessed, Snitch, and as the voice of Manny in the sequel to the hit animated film Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Cloudy II: Revenge of the Leftovers.
A San Francisco native and proud alumnus of American Conservatory Theater's ATP (honorary M.F.A. in
2008), Bratt is married to actress Talisa Soto Bratt and resides in Los Angeles with her and their two children.
