He then graduated to guest star appearances onLaw & Orderand other New York-based TV shows, and small parts on locally-shot films like Mira Nair’sThe Namesakeand James Gray’sThe Yards. Hernandez was then cast and worked opposite Edward Norton in Gavin O’Connor’sPride & Glory. Since then, he and his family relocated to Los Angeles, where he co-starred on the Fox seriesK-Ville, and appeared on numerous other shows, including24, Numb3rsandShark.

On the big screen, Hernandez was recently seen in the Dreamworks/Nickelodeon filmHotel for Dogs. He also reunited with Gavin O’Connor on the filmWarrior. Hernandez lives with his son, Diego, and his fiancée Marta Cabret in Pasadena. He still avoids detention at all costs.
