Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I was 40 when I did my first movie. I didn't know what the hell I was doing. My interpretation of acting at the time, because I didn't know how to build a character, was pure energy. People call me an instinctive actor. I used to consider that an insult early on, only because I had never studied. Now... I love it. See more »

Trivia:

The 70-year-old Aiello released his first single, "All of Me," in March of 2004, and followed it a month later with an album of standards. Continues to sing on tour with an eight-piece jazz band. See more »
