Those who know me, know that this man makes me smile. (Nothing Like the Holidays is a classic. That scene when they play baseball in the snow…). I think it’s fair to call Luis Guzmán an actor and comedian. The roles he takes often make us laugh. He is someone who has given the gift of joy to the world.

Guzmán was born in Cayey, Puerto Rico and grew up in NYC’s Lower East Side. He worked as a social worker (American University graduate– bet you didn’t know that!) and did acting on the side for fun, until his career took off. If you look at his filmography and TV appearances, there is a good chance he has been in something you have watched. Luis Guzmán, you have overcome obstacles and made a life beyond your wildest dreams. Because of this, eres un #orgullohispano.
