Trivia (4)

He was born and raised in the favelas of Rio like the characters in Cidade de Deus.
His album "Samba Esporte Fino" became the 1999 album of the year in Brazil.
His musical talents adorn the soundtrack for "The Life Aquatic" with covers of David Bowie songs Rebel Rebel and Starman and many other innovative tracks.
His younger brother Vitório died at age 16, shot in a riot between rival gangs. During an interview, he made an analogy with what happened to his character in City of God, Mané Galinha, who sees his brother shot by a gang. He said that the difference between him and Galinha was their choice: while Galinha chose vendetta, he chose to runaway from that life.

Personal Quotes (3)

My father is a big fan of westerns. I'd love to be able to bring him to the cinema to see a western with me in it.
The other actors were ... curious. They wanted to know if the favelas [slums] are really like that. I said unfortunately they're much worse.
The difference between Mané Galinha and myself was choice. He chose revenge. I chose to get out.
