Jon Huertas has been a happy part of ABC’s “Castle” for its five successful seasons, but he knew as a fresh face to L.A. in 1995 that he’d have some compromises to make. “The way Hollywood was back then, I think they were just starting to develop projects with bigger roles for Latinos,” he says. “And I knew that you have to capitalize on what you are, who you are, early in the business, and just prove you’re hirable in this industry. I knew if I wanted to make a career out of this, I had to play the game. So I had to play certain Latino stereotypes sometimes, which I wasn’t always happy about.
