Mini Bio (1)
Tom DeNucci is the recipient of the 2013 Rhode Island International Film Festival Robert Burgess Aldrich Award, named for the heralded director of the 1967 war masterpiece The Dirty Dozen. Like Mr. Aldrich, DeNucci also hails from Cranston, Rhode Island, USA. If DeNucci's career thus far is any indication, the young Director and Actor will be a worthy successor to Mr. Aldrich's legacy and a prominent voice for his own generation.
For DeNucci's Almost Mercy (2015), Scott Hallam of dreadcentral.com proclaims: "DeNucci holds nothing back on this one. Almost Mercy confronts major social issues and does so in a way that's delicate, but also quite powerful, and deals them into a revenge-thriller that's actually empowering for the viewer."
DeNucci plays a member of boxer Vinny Pazienza's entourage in Bleed for This (2016), which stars Miles Teller (Whiplash) as Pazienza and Aaron Eckheart (Erin Brokovich) as "Paz's" trainer. Directed by Ben Younger and executive produced by Martin Scorsese.
In action films, Tom and Ultimate Fighting legend Chuck Liddell wreak havoc as ruthless mercenaries in Altitude (2016), a film that stars Dolph Lundgren (Drago from Rocky IV) and Denise Richards (Wild Things). In Blue Line (2015), DeNucci plays a drug dealer on the edge, under siege from a hard as nails cop played by Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan).
As versatile as he is prolific, DeNucci's resume also includes forays into family films. As Director, his Arlo the Burping Pig (2016) tells the story of a lonely, young girl and the adorable teacup pig she adopts as a pet. Tom lends his acting talents to Christmas All Over Again (2016) as Francisco, a wild wedding planner.
Ringing in 2017 Tommy directed The Santa Files (2017) telling the story of a group of kids from Norpole, Maine and their search for Santa Clause. Now slated for 2018, Vault, is his next film following the story of a famous Providence heist in the 1970's.
Imagine Magazine named Tom DeNucci as its 2015 Shooting Star Award Recipient. As DeNucci's own unique path continues, one might imagine that Mr. Aldrich himself would be impressed by the young man following in his film footsteps from Cranston to Hollywood.
