Early career[edit]

The romantic comedy Snow Days starring Bernadette Peters marked the beginning of Caballero’s film career. He has brought his combination of acting and movement talents to bear in such high-profile films as Alex & Emma, Rent, and Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.

In 2007, he was an associate producer and co-star of Valentina’s Tango, opposite celebrated tango master Guillermina Quiroga.[2]
