Bio

David Zayas is an American actor best known for his starring television roles as Enrique Morales in the prison drama Oz (2000-2003) and as Angel Baptista in the crime thriller Dexter, from 2006-2013.

A former New York City police officer, Zayas began his acting career when he teamed up with Philip Seymour Hoffman at the Labyrinth Theater Company.

Since then, he has starred in numerous plays, including Jesus Hopped The 'A' Train, In Arabia We'd All Be Kings and Our Lady Of 121st St. While performing in New York plays, he began to book roles on hit TV shows such as New York Undercover, Law & Order and NYPD Blue, all while working for the New York Police Department.

Zayas' success earned him a leading role on UPN's crime drama The Beat. Soon after, Tom Fontana (writer of The Beat) created the character of Enrique Morales, the fierce leader of the Latino prisoners on HBO's Oz, especially for Zayas.

His feature film credits include Bringing Out The Dead, The Yards, Undefeated, Wit, Angel and The Interpreter. He also starred in the feature film Michael Clayton opposite George Clooney, and The Savages with Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Zayas was also seen in Sixteen Blocks opposite Bruce Willis, and in the ABC mini-series The Path To 9/11. He starred on Broadway in the Pulitzer Prize-winning Anna In The Tropics.

Zayas was also seen on the big screen starring in the sci-fi thriller Skyline. He also starred in The Expendables, portraying the villainous General Garza alongside Hollywood heavy hitters, including Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Mickey Rourke.

He can also be seen in 13, where he stars alongside Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke and 50 Cent.
