Latino actor Gregory Sierra was born January 25, 1941 in New York City. He is familiar to fans of Barney Miller as Detective Sergeant Chano Amenguale, and as Julio Fuentes, the Puerto Rican neighbor on Sanford and Son, where his character was often the brunt of racist insults and jokes via the show's main character, Fred G. Sanford (portrayed by Redd Foxx). He later went on to star as Dr. Tony Menzies on the unsuccessful sitcom A.E.S. Hudson Street. He was cast as South American revolutionary El Puerco on the serial spoof Soap, figuring prominently in the series' unresolved final episode in 1981. More recently he had regular roles on the TV shows Zorro and Son, Something is Out There and Common Law.
