Arrow star Rick Gonzalez and I laugh, analyze and dive deep on:

  • Learning the craft of acting
  • Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and Performing Art
  • Playing the "perp" on the first season of Law and Order: SVU
  • Being Rene Ramirez, aka Wild Dog, on Arrow
  • Growing up in a Puerto Rican and Dominican neighborhood in Brooklyn
  • Being a Latino actor ... and stereotypes
  • Why he turned away from acting
  • Falling off the rails
  • Getting back on track
  • Confidence
  • Kanye West
  • Rick's love life
  • Being a dad
  • Reconfirming his faith
  • His cool, funky, inexpensive glasses

Hang out with us for an hour and get to know the REAL Rick Gonzalez.
