In 1990 director Bigas Luna cast him in The Ages of Lulu and from there his career took off. His first major leading role was in Jamon Jamon with Penelope Cruz. Other credits include The Dancer Upstairs, Mondays in the Sun, Collateral, The Sea Inside, Goya’s Ghost, No Country for Old Men, Love in the Time of Cholera, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, and Eat Pray Love.
