Benjamin Bratt Talks Street Cred, Family, And Latinos In The Media

The actor, who’s married to actress Talisa Soto, said he’s busier than ever, managing a career and a family. As he continues to snag coveted roles, he says he has become more mindful of diversity in media. 

“It’s 2013, and we’re the largest ethnic population,” he said, “We’re going to be the majority by 2050 and the fact that you can’t name one Latino actor who can green light a film in this day and age speaks to the unfairness and racism that exists within the industry.”

Despite this inequality, the Latino actor seems to be doing well for himself. He’s recently been taking on more comedic roles, and his new movie, Cloudy 2, will premiere on September 27.
