Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Anthony Ruivivar specialized in playing emergency services personnel on TV procedural dramas, starting with his breakout role as a paramedic and followed by a succession of law enforcement officers. The Honolulu-born actor started his career with small roles in a number of films including family drama "White Fang 2" (1994) and cult science fiction thriller "Starship Troopers" (1997). Shortly after he married actress Yvonne Jung in 1998, he landed the leading role of paramedic Carlos Nieto on "Third Watch" (NBC 1999-2005), a procedural drama which showed the interaction of fire, police and paramedic services over the course of one daily shift. The show ran for six seasons; Jung joined the cast in season five as Nieto's eventual love interest, paramedic Holly Levine.

These included playing a police officer on "Numb3rs" (CBS 2005-2010), "Criminal Minds" (CBS 2005-) and "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (CBS 2000-), amongst others. He co-starred as an FBI agent on the thriller "Traveler" (ABC 2007) and as a lawyer in courtroom drama "The Whole Truth" (ABC...

He co-starred as an FBI agent on the thriller "Traveler" (ABC 2007) and as a lawyer in courtroom drama "The Whole Truth" (ABC 2010), but both series were canceled after only a handful of episodes were aired. As a change of pace he became the voice of Batman/Bruce Wayne for animated series "Beware the Batman" (Cartoon Network 2013-), while also playing two very different recurring roles as Indian tribal chief Alex Longshadow on quirky drama "Banshee" (Cinemax 2013-) and as yet another police officer on the Los Angeles-set cop drama "Southland" (NBC/TNT 2009-2013).
