    • Enrique Murciano: I believe in giving directly. If I'm at a red light and there's a guy who went to war, who's homeless, I give more than a dollar at that point. A kid is sick, and I know about it? I take care of him. It's much more of a hands-on approach, stuff that doesn't go noticed but stuff that I know I did. If you're constantly dancing the dance of life, it keeps you very present.

  • Great actor.

    Like that he is on CSI every once in a while. Handsome.
  • An under rated actor who should be involved in many more mainstream movie projects. He's able to play characters of many variations, from playing Danny Taylor to Jeff Foreman to a totally different character Ricardo Fellove, he played them all really wellmoreless

    Enrique is such a talented actor, I love him as Danny Taylor in Without a trace, he's able to show the tough side and the sensitive side to Danny brilliantly. I thought he was so great in The Lost City which showed his ability to play a totally different character to that of Danny Taylor and to fit the role. I saw him in Miss Congeniality two and thought that since he was playing another FBI agent, it may seem too much like his character Danny Taylor, but that so wasn't the case. He did a great job! I think he's such a good actor who's under-used in Without a trace and I hope to see him in many more mainstream movies.moreless
