Anthony Ruivivar stars in "The Adjustment Bureau," alongside Matt Damon, Emily Blunt and Anthony Mackie, as McCrady.

Anthony Ruivivar was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, but received his bachelor of fine arts degree 6,000 miles away at Boston University. After graduating, Ruivivar made Manhattan his home, setting roots in New York theater and film.

Ruivivar recently starred in "The Whole Truth" on ABC as Alejo Salazar. In his first TV series, portraying paramedic Carlos Nieto in John Wells award-winning "Third Watch," Ruivivar earned an Image Award nomination and high praise from critics and fans. He's quoted as saying that Carlos was "an ethnically three-dimensional character you don't often see on TV, with a lot of room to explore. I am happy to portray who I am ethnically, and not have to identify with only one part of my background. My father is Filipino, Chinese and Spanish, and my mother is Scottish and German. The writers have allowed [my diversity] to be who Carlos is on the show, and that's brave."

Additional feature film credits include the critically praised "High Art," as well as "In & Out," cult favorite "Starship Troopers" (directed by Paul Verhoven), "Simply Irresistible" (with Sarah Michelle Gellar), "Race the Sun" (with Halle Berry) and "White Fang II" (directed by Ken Olin). He'll next star on the big screen in the independent features "Saturn" (with Mia Kirshner) and "Swimming" (with Lauren Ambrose), as well as the future DVD release of "Cash Crop" with James Van Der Beek.

Early on, Ruivivar had a recurring role on the daytime drama "All My Children" and guest-starred on "Law & Order," "Medical Investigation" and "Close to Home." He maintains his roots in New York theater as a member of both the Imua! Theater Company and Circle East (formerly known as the Circle Repertory Theatre). He recently directed and co-wrote his first play, "SAFE," which played to sold out houses at the Jose Quintero Theatre in New York City, garnering critical acclaim and a publishing deal with Samuel French.

In his free time Ruivivar—whose father is a musician—enjoys writing and playing music. True to his Hawaiian upbringing, he loves surfing. He now lives in Los Angles with his wife and two children.
