Cruz was born in The Bronx, New York of Puerto Rican descent. His mother, Julia, was a songwriter.[1] He currently resides in Los Angeles. He started his actor´s career when he was 9.

Cruz appeared as assistant D.A. Martin Allende in the legal drama Shark, with co-stars James Woods and Jeri Ryan. In the 1998 film Why Do Fools Fall In Love, the Cruz played the role of Herman Santiago, one of the original members of the rock and roll group the "Teenagers".
