Festival Reviews

Born: September 12, 1951 in Hoboken, New Jersey, USA

Married to: Nancy Sheppard (18 February 1994 – present) (3 children)

My real fear playing Ralphie in The Sopranos was that I would be typescast. Luckily, like Jimmy Gandolfini, I was able to get plenty of other work – Bad Boys 2 and Daredevil in particular. But in a way, Ralphie encouraged me to do more, to ensure he didn’t define me. That’s why I did Frankie & Johnny on Broadway and, to be honest, it’s why I took the role in The Handler – to show my fanbase that there’s more to me that just that nutcase, Ralphie.
