Rosie Perez's diverse talents range from actress, dancer, and choreographer to director and author. On the big screen, she recently was seen in "Pineapple Express," starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, Brad Furman's "The Take," opposite John Leguizamo, Tyrese Gibson and Bobby Cannavale, "The Other Guys," starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, "Pete Smalls Is Dead" with Peter Dinklage, "Won't Back Down," opposite Viola Davis, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Holly Hunter, and Ridley Scott's "The Counselor," alongside Michael Fassbender, Penélope Cruz, Cameron Diaz and Javier Bardem.

Perez received rave reviews for her performance as Googie Gomez in "The Ritz" on Broadway opposite Kevin Chamberlain. Perez received critical acclaim for her directorial debut, "Yo Soy Boricua Pa'que Tu Lo Sepas!," a documentary which celebrates Puerto Rican pride. Narrated by Jimmy Smits, the film uncovers the complex and controversial history between Puerto Rico and the United States. It was the highest-attended film at the Tribeca Film Festival and was produced by Moxie Firecracker Films in association with Perez's own Ten in a Car Productions. Perez also served as executive producer on the project.

Perez also starred in George Wolfe's critically acclaimed HBO film "Lackawanna Blues," for which her performance garnered her a 2006 NAACP Image Award Nomination for Outstanding Actress in a TV Movie, Mini-Series or Dramatic Special. The film won Best Film or Mini-Series Made for Cable TV from the National Board of Review and was nominated for Eddie, DGA, WGA, Humanitas, NAACP Image, and Independent Spirit Awards.

On the big screen, Perez's performance in Peter Weir's "Fearless" garnered her Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations. Perez's other film credits include "Human Nature," "Riding in Cars with Boys," "Do the Right Thing," "Night on Earth," "White Men Can't Jump," "Untamed Heart" and "It Could Happen to You."

As a producer, Perez's credits include Nancy Savoca's "24 Hour Woman" for The Shooting Gallery and HBO's "Rosie Perez Presents Society's Ride," which ran as three parts, and "Subway Stories," an anthology of short films that she created.

Perez began her career as a choreographer for such artists as Bobby Brown, LL Cool J and Diana Ross. She also choreographed and directed the Fly Girls on FOX's "In Living Color," for which she received NAACP Image Award and Emmy nominations.

Perez made her Broadway debut in the hit revival of Terrence McNally's "Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune," opposite Joe Pantoliano. She went on to star in Craig Lucas' "Reckless," opposite Mary-Louise Parker at The Biltmore Theater in fall 2004. Previously, Perez performed on stage in Eve Ensler's critically acclaimed "The Vagina Monologues" in the New York, Los Angeles and Boston productions and Jose Rivera's highly acclaimed "References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot" at the Joseph Papp Public Theatre, for which she won a Theatre World Award. Perez also performed in the Los Angeles Philharmonic's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and a staged reading of "Borrowed Light" at Alice Tully Hall, which was a series of monologues on the evolution of life behind bars, written by female inmates.

Perez chronicled her story in her 2014 memoir "Handbook for an Unpredictable Life: How I Survived Sister Renata and My Crazy Mother, and Still Came Out Smiling (with Great Hair)." She is the Artistic Chair of Urban Arts Partnership and sits on the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS.
