Adrian Martinez is an actor, writer, producer, and upcoming-director, with over eighty film and TV credits. Martinez began his career in show business portraying a high school track star on an episode of “Unsolved Mysteries.” Now, years later, Martinez finds himself co-starring in one very high profile major film released in December, 2013, “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” while making a cameo in another equally important film, “American Hustle.”
A few of Martinez’s favorite projects include: “It’s Kind of a Funny Story” co-starring opposite Zach Galifianakis, the comedy “Casa de mi Padre” opposite Will Ferrell, and the cult-favorite mockumentary “Mail Order Wife” in which Martinez’s lead portrayal was so convincing, audiences thought the film was really a documentary. Martinez’s talents have also been on display in such diverse films as Jim Sheridan’s “In America,” “Pieces of April” opposite Patricia Clarkson and Katie Holmes, the thriller “The Interpreter,” opposite Nicole Kidman, the comedy “Taxi” with Jimmy Fallon and Queen Latifah and “Kick Ass,” starring Nicholas Cage and Chloë Grace Moretz.
Martinez has made many guest appearances, including: HBO “Flight of the Conchords” and “Sex and the City;” Comedy Central’s “Inside Amy Schumer” and “Three Strikes." Martinez also had recurring roles on CBS' “A Gifted Man” and on HBO’s “The Sopranos” playing Ramone in Season 2. NYC theater audiences remember Martinez from his daring off-Broadway in “Massacre,” “Our Lady of 121st Street,” and “The Last Days Of Judas Iscariot,” both directed by Oscar-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman.
It's good to talk.
