Héctor Elizondo

Héctor Elizondo (born December 22, 1936) is an American actor. Elizondo's first major role was that of "God" in the play Steambath, for which he won an Obie Award. Since then Elizondo has participated in over eighty films and has made numerous television appearances, including his Emmy Award-winning role on the series Chicago Hope.
Elizondo was born in New York City, the son of Carmen Medina Reyes and Martín Echevarría Elizondo, a notary public and accountant. His parents moved from Puerto Rico to New York City, with the hope of finding a better way of life. His paternal grandfather was a Basque from Spain, and his maternal grandparents were from the Canary Islands.
He is probably best known to the television audience as Dr. Phillip Watters on the CBS television series Chicago Hope created by well known television creator David E. Kelley. He has won both an Emmy and ALMA award and was nominated for a Satellite Award and several SAG Awards for playing this role. He is one of only two people to remain on the show for its entire run, the other being Adam Arkin.
Héctor Elizondo is an adept of military style berets and yes, I think they look pretty good on him too.
