Mini Bio (1)
Sergio Calderon has worked as a professional actor since 1970. Following his studies at the Instituto Andrés Soler of the Asociación Nacional de Actores in Mexico, he was chosen for his first film, Bridge in the Jungle, based on B. Traven's novel, and starring legendary director/actor John Huston. Calderón 13 years later would work with Huston again, this time under Huston's direction as one of the sinister murderers in the classic Under the Volcano with Albert Finney and Jacqueline Bisset. In television in this same period, he played the guest stars "Malavida Valdése" and "El Cajón" in both of the two season-initial double episodes of the very popular "The A-Team" with George Peppard and Mr. T.
But principally he is well-respected and widely recognized for all of his long career of some 50 films. Calderon has worked with other out-standing directors besides Huston: Sergio Leone, Ron Howard, Luis Puenzo, R. Mann and many others. Since beginning his career he has worked with actors such as Anthony Quinn (Children of Sánchez), Peter Falk and Alan Arkin (The In-Laws), Robert Mitchum, James Coburn and Rod Steiger (Duck, you Sucker), Gerard Depardieu and Pierre Richard (Le Chevre) and Gregory Peck, Jane Fonda and Jimmie Smits (Old Gringo).
He is perhaps most well known for his role as the first alien, "Head on a Stick", in the original blockbuster Men in Black, starring Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith. More recently he has worked with Cate Blanchett, Tommy Lee Jones and Aaron Eckhart in The Missing, and played "Captain Villanueva", the Spanish pirate lord in Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At World's End. His latest film is The Little Fockers, the comedy starring Robert de Niro, Ben Stiller, and Barbra Streisand.
