Freddy Rodriguez

Freddy Rodriguez (born January 17, 1975) is an American actor known for playing the characters Hector Federico "Rico" Diaz on HBO's Six Feet Under and El Wray in Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror. Recently, he was a recurring cast member on the series Ugly Betty as Giovanni "Gio" Rossi.

Rodriguez was born in Chicago, Illinois to Puerto Rican parents - a housewife mother and a janitor father. He was raised Roman Catholic. When he was 13, Freddy discovered a theater program for inner-city kids, which led to a scholarship to the Pulaski International School of Chicago, which he attended through 8th grade. Rodriguez is a graduate of the drama program at Lincoln Park High School in Chicago.

His first recognizable role on film was when he landed the part of Pedro Aragon, Jr. in A Walk in the Clouds with Keanu Reeves and Giancarlo Giannini. Afterwards, Rodriguez went on to film roles such as an obnoxious jock in Can't Hardly Wait. He played a Vietnam veteran in Dead Presidents with Chris Tucker and Larenz Tate and was also seen on Scrubs as Carla's brother Marco. As a voice actor, he contributed the voice of Más y Menos on Teen Titans.
