Adam Rodriguez (Eric Delko) may be leaving CSI: Miami, but his acting career is going strong.
As CSI Files previously reported, Rodriguez will have a more limited role in the upcoming season of Miami leading up to his departure. “CSI was an amazing opportunity to develop my career,” the actor said. “I’m ready to explore any kind of [good] projects down the road on TV or the big screen.”
Rodriguez is in the Tyler Perry film I Can Do Bad All By Myself, which is currently in theaters, and he is scheduled to appear in multiple episodes of the ABC series Ugly Betty this year. He also has three films coming up that have not been released: A Kiss of Chaos (a Latino thriller), Let the Game Begin with Stephen Baldwin and the police corruption drama Caught in the Crossfire, which features rapper 50 Cent. “It’s not a secret that Latinos work harder,” the actor said. “I’ve been working hard and waiting. Patience and hard work are paying off.”
Acting has been the actor’s passion for more than a decade, but it wasn’t his first dream. When he was young, he wanted to play professional baseball, but a spinal injury ended those aspirations. “The injury made clear that the dream of becoming a baseball player was intercepted,” Rodriguez explained. “When I turned 19, I said to myself: ‘I’m going to take acting classes and dedicate myself to this passion.'”
