Bio

Benjamin Bratt is an American actor best known for his starring role as Det. Rey Curtis on the television show Law & Order, from 1995-1999.

He also starred as Dr. Jake Reilly on the medical drama television series Private Practice, from 2011-2013.

Bratt's film career includes the critically acclaimed films Piñero, for which he was lauded for a striking, haunting, and career defining performance of the poet-playwright-actor Miguel Piñero; Steven Soderbergh's Traffic, which received five Academy Award nominations and a Screen Actor's Guild Award for Ensemble Cast; and The Woodsman, a festival and critical favorite starring Kevin Bacon.

Television audiences perhaps best recognise Bratt from his award-winning role of Detective Rey Curtis on NBC's long-running drama Law & Order.

Throughout his tenure on the show, he and the cast won an Emmy for Best Drama Series, while he garnered an Emmy Award nomination for best supporting actor, won two ALMA Awards, a SAG Award nomination with his cast for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, and an NCLR Bravo Award nomination.

Bratt starred in the A&E mini-series The Andromeda Strain, from Ridley Scott and Tony Scott and based on the novel by Michael Crichton, which was the number one original movie or miniseries of 2008 and garnered seven Emmy nominations.

Since 2008 he has starred on the A&E drama series The Cleaner, for which he also serves as Producer.

A veteran of over 25 films, Bratt's other work of note includes Curtis Hansen's The River Wild opposite Meryl Streep; Blood In, Blood Out for director Taylor Hackford; Clear and Present Danger starring Harrison Ford; Stephen Gaghan's directorial debut Abandon opposite Katie Holmes; the World War II drama The Great Raid for Miramax Films; the comedy Miss Congeniality with Sandra Bullock, for which he won a Blockbuster Entertainment Award; and the theatrical adaption of the acclaimed novel by Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Love in the Time of Cholera, co-starring Javier Bardem.

In La Mission, due in theatres in 2009, Bratt re-teams with his writer/director/producer brother Peter Bratt (Follow Me Home) to star in and produce a story which recalls the culture, people, and beliefs of their childhood in the Mission district of San Francisco.

Benjamin and Peter Bratt have recently joined with producer Alpita Patel to form 5 Stick Films, a production company geared towards films of conscience, with an aim toward telling stories with passion, vision and personal reflection.

La Mission is the first film from this emerging endeavour.

Bratt is married to actress Talisa Soto Bratt. They reside in Los Angeles with their two children.
