Born and raised in New York, Adam Rodriguez grew up dreaming of a professional baseball career, but a few serious injuries made scholarship offers to play in college disappear and soon after he decided to focus on an acting career. Within months of arriving in Los Angeles, Rodriguez landed a series regular role on “Brooklyn South,” on the Network, and thereafter a string of television roles on the series “Felicity,” “Resurrection Blvd” and “Roswell.” He is most well-known for his role on “CSI: Miami,” on the Network, for which he also wrote and directed two episodes. Since then he’s appeared in “Ugly Betty,” “Necessary Roughness,” “Psych” and “The Goodwin Games.” His feature film credits include “Magic Mike,” “Caught in the Crossfire” with 50 Cent, “Take” with Jeremy Renner and Minnie Driver, and Tyler Perry's “I Can Do Bad All by Myself,” for which he won the 2010 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture. Recently, he wrapped the indie romantic comedy “Lovesick” with Matt LeBlanc, as well as “About Last Night,” starring comedian Kevin Hart. Rodriguez has been featured in People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” issue and in People en Español Magazine's “25 Most Beautiful People.” Also, he was featured in Lionel Richie’s music video “I Call It Love” and Jennifer Lopez’s breakthrough music video “If You Had My Love.” In his free time, he enjoys reading, playing the guitar and trying to write music, poetry and bad jokes. He still enjoys going to the batting cages and dreaming about hitting game-winning home runs. Rodriguez divides his time between Los Angeles, New York and Charleston, South Carolina where he is filming “Reckless.” His birthday is April 2. Follow him on Twitter @_adam_rodriguez.
