Nestor Carbonell

Nestor appears in the pivotal role of Luis Fellove, the middle brother of a prominent Cuban intellectual family. Nestor capably depicts the deep conflict of Luis' noble ideals for a democratic government in the mold of his pacifist father, and his inability to see any way other than armed conflict to achieve it. But to save his nation in a violent manner could cost him his family and stunning wife, Aurora (InÚs Sastre).

Nestor can also be seen in the Showtime film, Manhood, starring opposite Janeane Garofalo and John Ritter. The project is a follow up to the 2001 Sundance film, Jack the Dog, in which Nestor plays the title character. Nestor's other feature credits include: Noriega; God's Favorite; The Laramie Project and Attention Shoppers - which he also wrote. Carbonell's most recent television credits include series regular roles on Century City and Barry Sonnenfeld's The Tick, as well as guest starring roles on Fox's House, NBC's Scrubs, and USA's Monk.

As a writer, Carbonell is currently developing a TV pilot for ABC Family, as well as adapting one of his favorite books to the screen, Against All Hope; A Memoir of Life in Castro's Gulag, by Armando Valladares.

Although Carbonell was born in New York City, he was raised in 10 different locations all over the globe: Mexico, Venezuela, Florida, Connecticut, the Bahamas, and London, among others. A Harvard graduate, it was there that he discovered his thespian talent: a first-year drama course led to his performing in a number of school plays. In addition to starring in the Harvard productions of Extremities; A View form the Bridge; House of Games and The Tempest, Carbonell starred in the off Broadway world premier of the two character play A Silent Thunder and The Doctor is Out at San Diego's Old Globe theater.

Nestor currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife, actress Shannon Kenny, and their two sons, Rafael and Marco.
