Biography

Richard Montoya's name has appeared alongside some of Hollywood's biggest stars. The multitalented actor and filmmaker made his low-key debut as a Native American in the western comedy "Lucky Luke". In 1992, he supported Sean Astin and Brendan Fraser in the caveman comedy "Encino Man", and garnered a small role in "Hero", headlined by Dustin Hoffman, Geena Davis, and Andy Garcia. Montoya landed a larger part as a detective in the Michael Douglas-Robert Duvall thriller "Falling Down" in 1993 before branching out creatively. He wrote and starred in "Culture Clash", a TV sketch show which ran for three years. The series was revived in 2005 under the name "Culture Clash in AmeriCCa", and Montoya earned a co-executive producer credit in addition to writing and performing. In 2006, Montoya found a larger audience for his comedy in the Jack Black luchadore laffer "Nacho Libre", and later teamed with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts for the fortysomething romantic comedy "Larry Crowne", directed by Hanks. In January of 2012, Montoya released his first directorial effort, "Water & Power", a gritty sibling drama set in the LA underworld starring Clancy Brown, Emilio Rivera, and Enrique Murciano. Montoya also served as writer and producer of the film.
