Personal Quote:

[re dad Bobby Cannavale] He and my mom [Jenny Lumet] call him my wife. When at my mom's, he calls me two or three times a day. Sometimes he'll say, 'We need to have a talk, we've been distant lately.' And I'm like, 'Dad, it's finals week.'


Bobby Cannavale, who plays his father on Nurse Jackie (2009), is Jake's real-life father (with ex-wife/actress Jenny Lumet). See more »
