Luis Da Silva Jr. stars in "Fast Five," opposite Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster, as Chato.

Luis Da Silva Jr. is an actor, but before that he was internationally famous as the "world's best basketball handler." He began playing basketball at the age of ten, working tirelessly to develop his basketball-handling skills. As an eighteen year old, Luis walked into an open audition for a commercial for Nike. They told him to "do some tricks with the basketball," but little did they know the countless hours Luis had spent practicing tricks with his Spalding basketball. He had been practicing various ways to dribble and created reams which would later define the style of "freestyle basketball." Nike was in awe of this young talent and immediately signed him to represent their Nike ad campaign which is, to this day, one of the most widely recognized commercials to ever air on television.

This commercial led to widespread fame, and Silva has traveled around the world, sharing his passion and talent for basketball. It has also spawned other opportunities, and in more recent years Silva has begun to make his name as a rising young actor in Hollywood.

His feature film credits include "Death Sentence," "Live Free or Die Hard," "Catch and Release," "Fracture," "The Brave One" and "American's Most Wanted." He has also appeared on numerous television series, including "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," "Burn Notice," "Treme," "Mercy" and "Southern Fried Stings."

With his natural charisma and talent, Luis Da Silva Jr. looks to continue to establish himself, both as a brilliant basketball performer and a talented young actor.
