Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Having emerged from the New York theater world, actor Danny Pino established his screen presence with a number of guest starring roles before becoming a star as homicide detective Scotty Valdes on the long-running procedural "Cold Case" (CBS, 2003-2010). Previously, Pino had made a name for himself as the brutal drug kingpin, Armando Quintero, on the gritty cop drama, "The Shield" (FX, 2002-08), and was perfectly cast to play Desi Arnaz in the made-for-television biopic, "Lucy" (CBS, 2003). During his run on "Cold Case," Pino had roles in a number of independent features like "Between" (2005) and "Rx"(2005), while appearing as a guest star with a crossover turn on "CSI: New York" (CBS, 2004- ) and "Burn Notice" (USA Network, 2007- ). After "Cold Case" went off the air in 2010, the actor kept a low profile until the following year when he took over for a departing Christopher Meloni on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (NBC, 1999- ). Clearly, Pino's pedigree as a trained stage actor and the diversity of his screen performances had positioned him for a lengthy career as both leading man and effective character actor.
