I'm willing to bet that somewhere, right now, some TV station is playing an episode of 'Law & Order'. And it might just feature Benjamin Bratt.
Benjamin did four seasons on 'Law & Order', collaring bad guys opposite the legend Jerry Orbach. When he finally turned in his badge, Benjamin was able to show off his range: a sinister drug kingpin in Steven Soderbergh's 'Traffic'. Sofia Vergara's ex on 'Modern Family'.
Then there's his latest film, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. It's called 'The Lesser Blessed'.
He plays a member of the Clin-Chaw First Nation, and it's a role that's significant for Benjamin, whose Mom - a native-American activist of Peruvian ancestry - took him to some interesting places as a kid, including Alcatraz Prison.
It's a past he's able to draw on in 'The Lesser Blessed', about a young man trying to find his way in a remote community in the Northwest Territories.
