Ernesto is an American TV and Film Actor, Writer, Voice-Over Artist and Songwriter.
Born and raised in South Texas, Ernesto began his journey in the entertainment industry as a drummer/ vocalist in local rock bands, playing small parts in school and church plays and basically being a class clown. His first major acting accomplishment was being directed by Peter Berg on the hit series Friday Night Lights. Life and new responsibilities brought him to New York City where he landed roles on Blue Bloods, Unforgettable, Body of Proof (opposite Dana Delany), X-Men: First Class (opposite Kevin Bacon) and Brawl in Cell Block 99 (opposite Vince Vaughn) among many others. In his spare time, Ernesto goes back to his first love, music, as he is an accomplished songwriter writing for major Country Music Artists.
“Life inspires. There’s so much to see and live through. I’ve never wanted to go through life asking “what if?” So I go for it and I use it in my acting, my writing and my growth as person.”
Voice Over Demos
"Having worked in casting and as a producer for over fifteen years.. I can attest that it is rare to find an actor who not only has great acting skill, but who also really "gets it" when it comes to the business. Ernesto is that rare find. I have recommended him to clients who have all applauded his work as much as I do. Ernesto is great in front of the camera as well as off."
- Ann Gillette/ Casting Director/ Producer
Ernesto is a force of nature and the sweet guy next door - and can deliver both within the same sentence. He's an actor's actor and director's actor, a golden fusion talent and a camaraderie that is such a pleasure to have on set.
- Jolyn Janis/ Actor/ Producer
Ernesto is one of those actors that you work with once and you're addicted. He makes acting look easy, and makes directing feel easy. He is hard working and intelligent, yet hilarious and grounded. I wish there were more individuals like him in the acting world.
