Andy Garcia

(Andres Arturo Garcia-Menendez)
actor
Born: 4/12/1956
Birthplace: Havana, Cuba

Cuban-American actor whose smoldering good looks have helped establish him as a favorite Hollywood leading man, usually in roles that show him on one side of the law or another. His breakthrough role came as the cool-headed rookie-policeman-turned-fed in The Untouchables (1987), and he later was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for being the one redeeming thing in The Godfather: Part III (1990). He is also versatile, playing the chain-smoking reporter in Kenneth Branagh's Dead Again (1991), the career criminal in Things to Do in Denver when You're Dead (1995), alcoholic Meg Ryan's loyal husband in When a Man Loves a Woman (1994), and Just the Ticket (1999).
