In “Men in Black,” Tommy Lee Jones’ ‘Agent K’ stops a group attempting to cross the border and asks Calderon’s character, a head on a stick, “What if I break your face,” “You’re very ugly, no?” before adding, “You don’t speak a word of Spanish,” and using a knife to expose him as an alien.

In 2022, Calderón played a corrupt cop in the mystery series “The Resort.”

“I love to play those types of characters, because people really hate me,” he told the LA Times last week. “They tell me in the streets how much they hate me. But to me, that is my success. Because that means I was able to convince people with what I performed.”

Calderón also said that he enjoyed it when people recognized him.

“If I can make them cry and I can make them laugh, then maybe I’m a good actor,” he said.

He is survived by his wife, Karen Dakin, children Patrick Calderón-Dakin and Johanna Calderón-Dakin, son-in-law Raaj, and grandchildren Krishnaavi, Emiliano and Victoria.
