Who is andy garcia dating
Garcia's father lost his property as a result of Castro's confiscation of land from private owners. In the midst of this political turmoil, when Garcia was 5 years old, he and his family moved to Miami, Florida.
Garcia played Tony Manero in the stage version of Saturday Night Fever, which ran from 1998-99 in London.
His second feature-film performance was a major role in the 2000 film Coyote Ugly.
Later in 2000, he played the role of Sean in Bootmen.
In the movie, Garcia plays Terry Benedict and reunites with George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, and Bernie Mac, a crew of actors that Garcia calls "generous and easy-going.
There's a friendship that develops," he says, noting that the actors would sometimes stop by the Ocean's lounge set during filming on the Warner Bros. "It's always a pleasure to hang." Garcia's first major break was in Brian De Palma's The Untouchables, in 1987, and he received Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for his supporting role in Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather: Part III (1990).
In 2004, he also played alongside Lindsay Lohan and Megan Fox in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, as the character Stu Wolff, a drunk rock star, who is part of the band Sidarther and is, in Lola's words, "a greater poet than Shakespeare".
He went on to make strong impressions in Dead Again with Kenneth Branagh (1991), When a Man Loves a Woman with Meg Ryan (1994), and Twisted with Samuel L. While continuing to act, he also made his feature directorial debut in 2006 with The Lost City, which he starred in, alongside Dustin Hoffman and Bill Murray.
And as a percussionist (bongos and congas) and pianist, Garcia has won two Grammy Awards for CDs he performed on and produced in 19.
He carries a strong work ethic -- passed along by his parents, who moved their family from Cuba to Miami when Garcia was 5 -- and he is constantly driving forward to fulfill his next dream as an artist.
But he is also happy being one of the guys, which he did again in Ocean's Thirteen, the third in a trilogy of films that began with Ocean's Eleven, a remake of the 1960 Rat Pack heist flick.
