Miguel Sandoval has appeared in over one hundred and sixty film and television roles, including the popular boxoffice hits "Jurassic Park", "Clear and Present Danger", "Do the Right Thing", "Get Shorty", and "Up Close and Personal".

He has guest starred on such television series as "Seinfeld", "Frasier", "Murder One", "Law and Order", "E.R.", "Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her", and "The Crew".

More recently, Mr. Sandoval has found roles on a variety of television series and movies including "The X-Files", "The West Wing", and various encarnations from 2005-2011 of the popular series "Medium", "Entourage", the 2014 installment of "Dallas", "Bad Judge", "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency", and "Sharp Objects".

His diverse feature films roles of late include: "Blow", "Collateral Damage", "Real Steel", "Sun Belt Express", "Eternity Hill", and "Blood Father", to name but a few.

Miguel began working as a professional actor in 1975 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, when after studying pantomime (on a lark) with a local mime school, he was asked by that company to join the cast of "The Dumb Wife", a Commedia del'Arte to be performed in the parks. Later that year, Miguel joined the troupe full time and continued more sophisticated study of mime, working with Tom Leabhardt, a disciple of the famed Etienne Decroux, founder of L'Ecole de Mime de Paris.

Along with his wife (and original mime teacher) Linda, he transformed the company into New Mexico's first full time professional theater company performing original works, as well as classical and contemporary pieces. Examples are "The Collected Works of Billy the Kid" by Michael Ondaatje, "The Ride Across Lake Constance" by Peter Handke, "The Real Inspector Hound" by Tom Stoppard, and "An Anthology of Works by Gertrude Stein".

Besides presenting its work in a formal theater, the company, called The Performing Arts Collective continued to perform in parks and schools throughout the state until its members disbanded in 1979.

Miguel then founded an acting company comprised of inmates at the New Mexico State Penitentiary. They trained two times a week for one year, eventually presenting a production of "Waiting for Godot" and "Endgame" for the inmate population, as well as the general public.

From there Miguel went on to act in a season at The Nina Vance Alley Theater in Houston, Texas, playing Tybalt in "Romeo and Juliet", among other roles. Next he returned to his hometown of Santa Fe, New Mexico for the inagural season of the Santa Fe Festival Theater, performing in "Cyrano De Bergerac" and "The Front Page". It was during that summer (1981) that Miguel got his first taste of movie making when he was cast in the film "Timerider", executive-produced by ex-Monkee Michael Nesmith, who recommended him to the director of his next film (Repo Man), Alex Cox. So it was off to La-La Land.

While beginning to work in television and movies, Miguel kept his hand in the theater playing the title role in Peter Handke's "Kaspar" and an adaptation of "The Circus of Dr. Lao", among others.

After "Repo Man", Miguel worked with Alex on five other projects. "Sid and Nancy", "Straight to Hell", "Walker" (also Casting and Second Unit Director), "Highway Patrolman" (Casting only), "Death and the Compass", and most recently, "Three Businessmen".

Miguel Sandoval's advice to the aspiring actor:

Don't let them see you sweat. Develop a strong and candid relationship with your representative(s) or maybe your loved one or coach, someone who allows you to rant, complain, moan, whine, voice resentments ("Don't they know who I am" category), flip out, maybe even rehearse, etc.

Then you can get it all out and when you go in for the interview/audition, you are self-possessed to the maximum; James Bond, baby, The proverbial Ice Queen. You're prepared, you're confident, and, perhaps most importantly, you've released all those nasty demons that can only prevent you from scoring the job.

Yeah, sure, luck has something to do with it, but as the old adage goes:

The harder you work, the luckier you are."

Don't let pride take you anywhere. Follow the work."
