No other actor has covered all angles of the war on drugs – its tragedies, violence and farces – more than Benicio del Toro.It's a story that has followed the Puerto Rico-born actor from the start: One of his first credits was the 1990 NBC miniseries "Drug Wars: The Camarena Story". In Denis Villeneuve's muscular, grim thriller "Sicario," del Toro finds himself back on the other side of the border, playing a mysterious mercenary joined with a CIA task force covertly pursing a Mexican drug lord."Sicario," which debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in May and had its North American premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, has already drawn raves for del Toro's terse gravitas as a shadowy man known only as Alejandro.Cinematographer Roger Deakins likens the weary-eyed del Toro to Robert Mitchum. Villeneuve would often cut del Toro's dialogue, stripping the part down as he realized the actor did more with less.
