While Motherf**ker marks the Broadway debut for Vazquez, the actor has been long involved with the New York theater scene as a founding member of the LAByrinth Theater Company and has turned up in a variety of Hollywood films, from The A-Team to American Gangster.
Other Honors for this Role:
—Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Play

The "f" word had been a recurring theme in Vazquez's career: In addition to The Motherf**ker With the Hat, he has appeared in the films The F Word, F--K and the forthcoming Fugly!
“People were gunning for this play—it’s a play with a sketchy title, a word you can’t say. But now it’s like, ‘Hey, maybe we were supposed to be up here in midtown!’ It’s just unbelievable.” —Vazquez in an interview with Broadway.com on 5/6/11
