Actor Bio

Jose Pablo Cantillo stars as Dave, a member of Bryan's OPCON team who does not take anything too seriously until the situation requires it, in the upcoming NBC action thriller series "Taken."

Cantillo grew up in the small Midwestern town of Terre Haute, Indiana, as the youngest of three competitive brothers. He excelled in tennis, marital arts, baseball, and, of course, the Hoosier state's favorite sport, basketball. He attended Indiana University Bloomington where he graduated from the business honors program. It was at IU while fulfilling speech requirements that Cantillo took his first theater class and discovered his passion for acting.

Upon graduation, Cantillo moved to New York to study formally at the renowned Atlantic Theater Company and The Barrow Group School. After leading several stage productions in Off-Broadway companies, he turned his attention to film and television. His work has been seen in the widely released films "The Manchurian Candidate," "Crank," "Disturbia" and most recently, edgy sci-fi entry "Chappie."

In television, Cantillo has been an imposing villain on "Sons of Anarchy" and killed his share of zombies on "The Walking Dead."

Cantillo lives with his wife and high school sweetheart, Kristi, and their two lovely daughters in Santa Clarita, California.
