Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

This hard-working character actor has appeared in numerous films and TV shows since the mid-1980s, often in Hispanic or Italian roles. Born in Puerto Rico but raised in Manhattan, Calderon got his start onstage after a stint in the Army. His off-Broadway shows have included "Short Eyes," "The Trial of Sgt. Deluca," "Richard III," and "First Breeze of Summer." He appeared with Robert De Niro off- and on Broadway in "Cuba and His Teddy Bear" in 1986, and earned critical attention for two productions at NYC's The Public Theatre: the one-act boxing drama "Blade to the Heat" (1994), as the fallen champion, and a controversial production of "Troilus and Cressida"(1995), as a hard-rock Achilles. A member of the Actor's Studio, Calderon also co-founded the INTAR LAB company.
