Who Are Those Guys ~ Sergio Calderon

Sergio Calderon was born in Coatlan del Rio, Morelos, Mexico on July 21, 1945. He began working as an actor in 1970 after his studies at the Instituto Andrés Soler of the Asociación Nacional de Actores in Mexico. His first film, “Bridge in the Jungle”, was based on B. Traven's novel, and starring legendary director/actor John Huston. Calderón. Thirteen years later he would work with Huston again, this time under Huston's direction as one of the killers in the classic “Under the Volcano” with Albert Finney and Jacqueline Bisset. Calderon was also active in television during this same period, he made a guest appearance on ‘Malavida Valdése’ and ‘El Cajón’. He appeared in both of the initial double episodes of the very popular ‘The A-Team’ with George Peppard.

He’s had a respectable career in some 50 films. Calderon has worked with several outstanding directors besides Huston such as Sergio Leone, Ron Howard, Luis Puenzo, R. Mann and many others. Since beginning his career he has worked with such notable actors as Anthony Quinn (“Children of Sánchez”), Peter Falk and Alan Arkin (“The In-Laws”), Robert Mitchum, James Coburn and Rod Steiger (“Duck, you Sucker”), Gerard Depardieu and Pierre Richard (“Le Chevre”) and Gregory Peck, Jane Fonda and Jimmie Smits (“Old Gringo”).
