Carlito’s Way

In my quest to see all movies with Viggo Mortensen in them I just saw Carlito’s Way, starring Al Pacino. I have no idea how I had not seen this before. It is very interesting because many of the main characters are supposedly hispanic, but are played by non-hispanics. Why didn’t they use hispanic actors? Only Luis Guzman – from Puerto Rico – was of proper heritage. “http://www.lisashea.com/hobbies/viggo/films.html”Viggo Mortensen Film Listing
