Benjamin Bratt was most excited to “play the villain”

On playing a mole:
“Historically, there’s always a mole that’s revealed. It’s funny because when I was initially contacted to play the role, the thing that excited me the most was the potential to play the villain. And they said look, part of our thinking here is that people don’t expect it. When you get cast in this role, you’ve been on Law and Order, you usually play a guy in uniform, an upstanding person. To have it come out with a twist like this was a great opportunity for me to do something different and to surprise people hopefully.”

Doing physical scenes:
“I don’t want to reveal too much, but there comes a point towards the end of the season when physicality really becomes key to a couple of different scenes between me and Kiefer. He and I are not let’s say as spry and young as we were back in the late 80’s or even early 90’s.”

It was the correct decision by the writers of 24 on making Steve Navarro the mole at the CIA in London because I found his character to be so stale and so boring and so mysterious before the big twist was revealed. Benjamin Bratt has done a convincing and excellent job at portraying Navarro as a villain and I hope that Navarro has a fight scene with Kate Morgan sometime later this season.

Dat dirty mustache

I think Steve Navarro will be playing a bigger role in the final few episode with Kate finding out the truth and comforting him……..he may not even be the one who frame Morgan………I predicting he will be killed or arrested

He sure is gorgeous!!!!

Benjamin Bratt really is an amazing actor, and I don’t use the word, “amazing”, lightly. He has the perfect balance of calculated and natural delivery. You really do get the feeling that he meticulously crafts his facial ticks and body language, but he performs it all so smoothly that you can’t tell if he’s just one of the best “mechanical” actors or if he’s just that damn suave. Perhaps I’m out of the loop on this, but I think this guy is seriously underrated.
