Miguel A. Núñez, Jr. (born August 11, 1964) is an American actor. He is best known for his supporting roles in The Return of the Living Dead and Life and leading roles in Juwanna Mann and Tour of Duty.

Núñez was born in New York City, is of Puerto Rican and Dominican, and was raised by his grandparents in Wilson, North Carolina. One of his first major screen roles was the supporting role of Spider in The Return of the Living Dead, and his first major starring role was that of Marcus Taylor on the CBS series Tour of Duty, where he was a main cast member for all three seasons of the show. He later appeared on the short-lived Fox network series My Wildest Dreams, as well as the UPN show Sparks as well as in movies such as Juwanna Mann. Núñez also held the recurring role of Zach in the second season of the Friends spinoff, Joey.

Nùñez is also a executive producer of the 2014 comedy-drama musical film, School, directed and written by Nick Cannon.


Né dans une famille de neuf enfants à New York, Nuñez a déménagé avec sa famille en Caroline du Nord, où il a grandi et a terminé ses études secondaires. Après le lycée, il s'installe à Los Angeles avec le rêve de devenir acteur.

Son expérience à Los Angeles n'a pas été aussi bonne qu'il l'avait espéré. Pendant les cinq premières années, il ne put décrocher aucun poste d'acteur pour la télévision ou le cinéma et fut forcé de gagner de l'argent d'une autre manière.

Au début des années 80, il commence à s'intéresser de près à l'industrie, remportant des rôles invités dans des séries comme Automan, The Twilight Zone, Amen, ainsi que des rôles dans des films comme Joy of Sex (1984), Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985). et Le retour des morts-vivants (1995).

Le travail cinématographique a commencé à prendre forme à la fin des années 80, bien que Nuñez ait continué à jouer des personnages de fond sans nom tels que Man with Broken Nose 'dans Harlem Nights (1989) et le membre de l'équipe 4 dans Lethal Weapon 3 (1992). Au milieu des années 90, cependant, il a commencé à jouer des personnages de soutien tels que Dee Jay dans Street Fighter et Bugs dans Hard Vice (tous deux en 1994).

Nuñez a fini par occuper le devant de la scène à la fin des années 90 en commençant par jouer un rôle dans la série télévisée The Faculty dans le rôle de Luis Jackson et dans le long métrage For Richer ou Poorer (1997). Il a également joué dans Why Do Fools Fall In Love (1998) et Life (1999), dans Biscuit.

En 2002, Nuñez a été choisi pour jouer le rôle principal dans la comédie de basket-ball Juwanna Mann, dans le rôle de Jamal, renvoyé de sa ligue et qui décide de s'habiller en drag and play pour la ligue féminine.

Toujours vivant à Los Angeles, Nuñez aide les sans-abri de la Union Rescue Mission grâce à son programme "Sparks of Hope".

Il est marié et a deux filles.
