He’s one of Hollywood’s most beloved Latino character actors… But, Luis Guzman has never appeared in a 3D film… until now!
The 55-year-old Puerto Rican actor is starring in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
“It’s my first 3D film and, truthfully, it looks stupendously good. Just like my role!” says Guzman with a chuckle to EFE. “I think that 3D is important today and it will be part of the future of movies, but I also think that they’re never going to replace us actors.”
Starring Josh Hutcherson, Dwayne Johnson and Vanessa Hudgens, the family adventure film centers on Sean Anderson (Hutchgerson), who partners with his mom’s boyfriend (Johnson) a mission to find his grandfather, thought to be missing on a mythical island.
It’s been almost two decades since moviegiers first saw Guzman’s shady-looking face in Carlito’s Way (1993), the film in which he played Al Pacino’s bodyguard. Since then actor has become an ongoing presence in Hollywood with his scene-stealing roles.
“I think that part of my secret is that I do good work, I have a good heart and I’m a good person,” Guzman told Efe. “I get along well with people and I have great respect for directors, producers and actors. Hollywood has given me so much love.”
Guzman’s film credits include Boogie Nights, Magnolia, Punch-Drunk Love, Out of Sight and Traffic. He most recently starred in the two seasons of HBO’s How to Make It in America.
Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, the sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth, open this Friday in theaters nationwide.
