Bio

Jon Huertas is an American actor best known for his television roles as T.J. 'The Playah' in the reality spoof show The Joe Schmo Show 2 (2004), and as Sgt. Antonio 'Poke' Espera in the mini-series Generation Kill, in 2008.

He also co-starred as NYPD homicide Detective Javier Esposito in the television drama series Castle, from 2009-2016.

Huertas is no stranger to the small screen. In the critically acclaimed miniseries Generation Kill, his stand-out performance as Sgt. Tony "Poke" Espera illustrates a streetwise philosophical view of what the U.S. Marines' 1st Recon Battalion endured during the first five weeks of the invasion on Iraq.

He's also appeared in numerous TV series, among them Prison Break, Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles, NCIS, CSI and Without a Trace.

Huertas co-produced and starred in the film The Insatiable with Sean Patrick Flanery and Michael Biehn. He also co-starred in Right at Your Door, which won Best Cinematography at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival.

Other features Huertas has starred in include The Objective, Believers, Why Do Fools Fall in Love, Bug and Executive Decision.

He first gained international public attention starring as Antonio on Moesha, before joining the cast Sabrina, The Teenage Witch as Brad Alcero, which won him a nomination for a 2000 ALMA Award.

A native New Yorker trained in Musical Theatre at TCU, he also writes and performs his own music.

He served in the U.S. military for eight years, becoming a veteran of three major conflicts that include the first Gulf War, before becoming a professional actor.
