Rick Gonzalez can currently be seen playing Ben on my new favorite show, Reaper on the CW Network. Ben is one of the lead character's friend and co-worker trying to capture and send escaped souls back to Hell. Gonzalez has been on quite a few popular TV shows including Boston Public, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, CSI: Miami and CSI.

Though he has a successful TV career, Gonzalez also has success in films including his first headlining role in this summer's Illegal Tender. He was also in the 2005 hit film Roll Bounce playing Naps with an outstanding cast featuring Shad Gregory Moss as lead (better known as rapper Bow Wow), Chi McBride, Mike Epps, Marcus T. Paulk, Nick Cannon, Megan Good, Jurnee Smollett and Charlie Murphy. Some of his other film works include: In the Valley of Elah, Pulse, War of the Worlds, Old School, The Rookie, Biker Boyz, Laurel Canyon and Coach Carter.

Besides acting in TV and film, Gonzalez has also appeared in videos including 'Hope' by Twista & Faith Evan from the Coach Carter soundtrack. Back in 2000, he decided to move to Los Angeles to expand his career which worked because he has been acting steady since. According to IMDb, he has four upcoming film projects which will add to his ever growing resume.
