Who is that actor: Miguel Ferrer
Heartthrob George Clooney has a cousin named Miguel Ferrer, who’s a fantastic character actor! (his parents are the great Rosemary Clooney and actor/academy award-winner José Ferrer). With all this pedigree you’d think he’d be a household name, instead of the dude everyone mistakes for this guy.
Adding to the confusion, like J.K. Simmons, Ferrer also has a deep, resonate voice and has costarred on an NBC procedural – Crossing Jordan, a show I have never seen! Still confused?
Ferrer’s filmography boasts a roster of “flamboyant” villains and shady characters. My favorites being his coke snorkeling fiend in the sci-fi cop classic Robocop
and the small potatoes drug smuggler Ruiz in Traffic
Recently, Ferrer has turned up on television, lending his talents to shows such as Psych, Law & Order: Criminal Intent and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. According to his IMDB page, Ferrer has a few irons in the fire and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing him in more roles and hopefully some more high profile roles.
Ferrer also used to be married to “Roxy” from Basic Instinct. I always wondered what happened to Leilani Sarelle :
