Yul Vazquez is universally loved for his role as “Bob the Intimidating Gay Guy” on Seinfeld.
Now he’s in Russian Doll, the spectacular new Netflix series, and I Am the Night, on TNT.
“I question everything, every day.”
“My life is a series of excellent decisions by smart women—and it really is true.”
“Everything is throwing a stone in your way. You’re being tripped constantly.”

Being a Cuban American
Playing dark, tough guys vs. his real sensitive side
His art (Visit yulvazquez.com!)
