Personal Quote:

I'm embarrassed by walking in front of cameras, people taking pictures of me. But I like acting, and I like to see myself do good work. I really, really like it.

Trivia:

Almost always played menacing Italian New Yorkers (though he was himself of Spanish heritage). However, one of his most memorable roles was as a good guy: the weary but righteous Detective Bishop in King of New York (1990). See more »
