Born in Brooklyn, raised in the Bronx, and spent most of his formative years hanging out in New York City, Kirk Acevedo, who is of Puerto Rican/Chinese descent, received his BFA from SUNY Purchase and founded a theater company called The Rorschach Group. After guest-starring on several television shows like "New York Undercover" and "Law & Order", he landed his best-known role as Alvarez, a morose and violent prisoner struggling for redemption on HBO's notoriously gritty "Oz". Though he was nominated for a Cable Ace award and an ALMA award for his work on "Oz", it was Acevedo's role as Pvt. Tella in "The Thin Red Line" that won him an ALMA.
