Youth and early career
Victor grew up in New York where his father worked in an auto shop while his mother was a seamstress. He grew up alongside a brother, and both yearned to pursue careers in the entertainment industry. At a very young age, he began taking classes at a performing arts school and at 14, he got his first role in the short film called “Five Feet High and Rising”.
During the making of this film, the director suggested that he expand it into a full feature, which led to the creation of “Raising Victor Vargas”. The comedy film follows the story of a teenager as he tries to manage his eccentric family while trying to win the affection of a girl. The film screened at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival and was a hit, earning it a nomination at the 19e Independent Spirit Awards for Best Debut Performance.
Access to notoriety
He continued to work on independent films over the next few years and then had another starring role in the film called “Haven”, which aired at the Toronto International Film Festival. It is set in the Cayman Islands and follows the story of different people whose lives intersect, creating a chain of violence and chaos. In 2005, he played skateboarder Tony Alva in the biopic titled “Lords of Dogtown”. To handle the role, he had to do surfing and skateboarding tricks, learning the craft in the process. The more complicated tricks, however, were performed by stuntmen, preferring a method action approach to the role.
He tried to skate a huge ramp during the second week of training and fractured one of his orbital bones as a result. He later said he had at least earned the respect of the skaters in the cast. In the following years he had more roles, such as in “I’m Reed Fish”, “Bonneville” and “Adrift in Manhattan”. In 2008, he interpreted the role of a soldier in “Stop-Loss”, a war film with Channing Tatum and Ryan Philippe, which follows the story of young soldiers psychologically scarred after their experience during the war in Iraq.
After working in films such as “The War Boys” and “Life is Hot in Cracktown”, Victor was cast in “How to Make it In America” as Cam Calderon’s character. The series aired on HBO for two seasons, following the lives of two friends trying to make it big on the New York fashion scene. The show was eventually canceled due to its failure to attract a large audience. In the meantime, he returned to acting and had a role in the movie ‘Godzilla’ – the monster movie is a reboot of the ‘Godzilla’ franchise, making it the 30the movie overall.
It is the second film produced entirely in Hollywood, starring Elizabeth Olsen and Ken Watanabe. It follows the story of a soldier caught in the crossfire between Godzilla and two other monsters. In 2016, he had a lead role in a season of “Colonylike character BB. The sci-fi show starred Sarah Wayne Calles and Josh Holloway for three seasons before being canceled. A few of his latest projects include the film adaptations of the “Fifty Shades” trilogy, in which he plays Jose Rodriguez.
