He appeared in such films as "Repo Man" and "Sid and Nancy" before director Spike Lee cast him as an NYPD officer in his acclaimed drama "Do the Right Thing." Sandoval would appear in another Lee film, reprising the role of Officer Ponte in 1991â¿¿s "Jungle Fever" opposite Samuel L. Jackson. After guest starring on television shows and appearing in small film roles throughout the early 1990s, Sandoval landed a small role in director Steven Spielbergâ¿¿s action adventure "Jurassic Park" in 1993.

Sandoval was nominated for two consecutive ALMA Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for the role, and also directed several episodes during his tenure on the series.
