Adrian Martinez

Bio:

Adrian Martinez is an actor, writer, producer, and director, with over 100 film and TV credits. Adrian plays the lead and produces his directorial debut, "iCreep" based on his original screenplay, with Dascha Polanco (Orange is the new black) as his leading lady. "iCreep" is presently in post production.

Adrian's career began as a high school track star on NBC's "Unsolved Mysteries". Some in casting have called Adrian, "the sidekick to the stars," as evidenced by his recent sidekick trifecta-- Will Smith's sidekick in Warner Bros' "Focus," , Ben Stiller's sidekick in his Fox remake of "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," Will Ferrell's sidekick in Lionsgate's "Casa de mi Padre," to name a few.

Of the film and TV projects Adrian has been involved in, some of his favorites include, "It's Kind of a Funny Story," opposite Zach Galifianakis, and "Mail Order Wife," a mockumentary, where his lead portrayal was so convincing, audiences thought the film was a DOCumentary.

Adrian has been seen in a wide range of character portrayals including Jim Sheridan's "In America," opposite Katie Holmes in "Pieces of April," "The Interpreter," opposite Nicole Kidman, opposite Jimmy Fallon in "Taxi," and "Mona," which he also co-produced. "Mona" has aired several times on PBS' Indie night.

Mr. Martinez's TV work includes over forty guest spots, including "The Blacklist," a recurring guest star in CBS' "A Gifted Man," opposite Patrick Wilson, FX's "louie" opposite Louis CK, HBO's "Flight of the Conchords," "Sex and the City," recurring on Comedy Central's "Inside Amy Schumer," "Three Strikes," produced by Jon Stewart, and "Deadbeat" produced by Brad Pitt.

Mr. Martinez will soon be seen in several mainstream and indie films including Dreamwork's,"Office Christmas Party," "Going Under," opposite Bruce Willis,' '37' about the Kitty Genovese murder, 'Captain of the land of make believe,' directed by Domenica Cameron Scorsese, and 'Army of one,' opposite Nic Cage and directed by Larry Charles. Football fans will see Adrian as the State Farm 'discount double check' Cheesehead guy opposite Super bowl/ NFL MVP Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers.

Theater audiences know Mr. Martinez from his daring off-Broadway performances in Jose Rivera's "Massacre," for Rattlestick theater, "Our Lady of 121st Street," at the Union Square theater, and "The Last Days Of Judas Iscariot," at the Public theater, both directed by Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman, and written by Pulitzer prize winner, Stephen Adly Guirgis for the LAByrinth theater company, of which Adrian is a member.

Adrian is writing and developing film and TV projects through his production company, Paloma Pictures.
