"American Crime," ABC's bold drama exploring the culture clash surrounding a brutal assault on a white couple, was noted for several elements, including its sensitive writing, directing and extraordinary cast, led by Felicity Huffman and Timothy Hutton. Another performance that stood out in the ensemble was delivered by Richard Cabral, who played the heavily tattooed criminal Hector Tonz.

Cabral, who earned an Emmy nomination for his complex portrayal of Tontz, will be stopping by The Times studio at 2 p.m. Monday PDT to talk about the series and his character, who is implicated in the attack. Although he's made no shortage of bad decisions, Tontz is adamant he wasn't involved.

The actor's portrayal was shaped by experience. He's actually a former gang member who was constantly in trouble as a youth and was addicted to crack cocaine by the age of 15.
