With his talent onscreen in a multitude of film and television roles, Jay Hernandez stays on the pulse of filmmaking to rise as a knockout talent. His acting has been seen in films “Crazy/Beautiful,” “Friday Night Lights,” and “Takers” all bringing different points of characters to audiences.
As Dante Rivas on the television show “Nashville,” Jay played a sympathetic and recovering alcoholic who turned conniving in the quest to deceive Juliette Barnes, played by Hayden Panettiere. The role was yet another departure in his work and very well acted.
Jay is playing Daniel Acosta, a naïve and pampered son of one of the most prominent gang leaders in Los Angeles on the pulse pounding drama “Gang Related.” Jay continues to demonstrate his love for acting. As a storyteller, his roles become more complex and a key piece for acclaim worthy performances.
