Joseph Nuñez

Joseph Nuñez makes his motion picture debut in Domino. A native of Chicago, Nuñez grew up in the politically charged worlds of city government, baseball and sketch comedy. After attending college and several brief, unsuccessful stints in the workforce, Nuñez returned to one of his favorite youthful haunts, the world renowned Second City Theatre, to begin studying sketch comedy and improvisation in earnest. Before long, Nuñez was traveling the country with the Second City National Touring Company. He also wrote and performed in several Second City Outreach productions as well as worked with The Annoyance Theater and the Improv Olympic.

A relative newcomer to Hollywood, Nuñez has continued to produce live shows with his Latino-based sketch group Barrio Speedwagon at local venues such as the I.O. West and the world famous Comedy Store.

On television, Nuñez appeared on the hit series Arrested Development as Lupe's brother, on Cedric The Entertainer Presents as well as in several guest spots on Comedy Central. He has also appeared in several national television commercials.

Nuñez will next be seen in director Judd Apatow's The 40-Year-Old Virgin starring Steve Carell, Catherine Keener and Paul Rudd, and is presently working on Columbia Pictures' Pursuit of Happyness, starring Will Smith and directed by Gabriele Muccino.

Nuñez currently resides in Los Angeles with a filthy roommate and two disgusting cats.
