(The Latest Available Bio)

BENJAMIN BRATT's (Eduardo/El Macho) diverse career has successfully spanned film and television for more than 20 years. In 2010, Bratt won the Maverick Spirit Award at the Cinequest Film Festival for his work as producer and star of the indie hit La Mission, based in San Francisco. Written and directed by his brother Peter Bratt, the locally produced film garnered much critical praise and went on to receive a nomination for Outstanding Independent Motion Picture at the 2011 NAACP Image Awards, a GLAAD Media Award nomination for Outstanding Film -- Limited Release and four Imagen Foundation Award nominations, including two wins for Best Actor -- Feature Film (Bratt) and Best Supporting Actor -- Feature Film (Jeremy Ray Valdez).

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 Pinero; Steven Soderbergh's Traffic, which won four Academy Awards and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture; and The Woodsman, a film festival and critical favorite, which starred Kevin Bacon.

Bratt's upcoming films include Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2, in which he voices the character of Manny, and The Lesser Blessed, which premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival. Most recently, Bratt appeared in Snitch, alongside Dwayne Johnson.

Television audiences perhaps best recognize Bratt from his Primetime Emmy-nominated role as Detective Rey Curtis on NBC's long-running drama Law & Order. He also starred in and produced the A&E drama series The Cleaner. His portrayal of extreme interventionist William Banks garnered him the 2009 Alma Award for Best Actor in Television -- Drama. Recently, Bratt starred in ABC's drama Private Practice and landed a recurring role as Gloria's (Sofia Vergara) ne'er-do-well ex-husband Javier on ABC's smash-hit Modern Family.

A veteran of more than 25 films, Bratt's work includes Curtis Hanson's The River Wild, opposite Meryl Streep; Taylor Hackford's Blood In, Blood Out; 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," with Javier Bardem.
