American Latino: Edgar Ramirez portrays Roberto Duran in Hands of Stone
Venezuelan-born actor Edgar Ramirez had his official break-out this year by taking on the role as legendary Panamanian boxer Roberto Duran in the film Hands of Stone. The biopic also stars Robert De Niro, and Usher as Sugar Ray Leonard. Ramirez considers Duran to be the greatest-ever Latin American boxer and one of the top ten all-time greats. So this was one of those roles where the actor truly looked up to their inspiration, and you can bet that Edgar put everything he had into this portrayal.
