Jorge-Luis Pallo was born in New York and raised in Queens, Ecuadorian and Puerto Rican Pallo was known as the "parochial-school punk." He was raised by his single mom, Pat, a once-aspiring singer who never quite figured out how to pursue a career in show business. Having missed out on her opportunity, Pat encouraged her children to follow their dreams and gave them the best tools that she could by enrolling them in theatre, dance and guitar lessons. Fully prepared and supported Jorge made his grammar-school stage debut in "The Nutcracker." He later starred in high school productions of "Into the Woods" and "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum"
Jorge was accepted to NYU's theatre program, but it wasn't until his junior year in The Hangar Theatre's Summer Stock production of "A Few Good Men," directed by his mentor Bob Moss, that Jorge really connected with what would be his future career. After graduation, he toiled in Off-Broadway productions and joined the Latino sketch comedy group "Vaso de Leche." A friend introduced him to his first manager who urged him to move to Los Angeles to further his career. LA was not very welcoming at first, but he felt he found a home while teaching acting classes at Scott Sedita Acting Studios. A chance meeting with a fraternity brother and casting director at a Texas Hold 'Em poker game won him six days of work on the Cd's film, which got him a SAG card.
Jorge accumulated 60 plus feature film and network television credits. The highlight of his career was working with Spielberg on two features, Minority Report and War of the Worlds. He can most recently be seen as reoccurring character, Special Agent Bomb Tech Salazar, on NCIS LA. He also recently starred as Brian in the much anticipated sequel Insidious: Chapter 2. Jorge's television episodic work includes: Criminal Minds, Scorpion, 24, Sons of Anarchy and of course his most notable appearance would be as school counselor, Marc Molina, in several episodes of The Secret Life of The American Teenager. His compassionate and imaginative teaching methods have helped guide some of the young Hollywood talent working today. Hollywood Heart and Toys for Tots are two charities that are near to his "heart" because "being of service matters." This year he will be co-hosting his 13th annual cocktail party to gather toys for kids for Christmas.
