Welcome to my new website! I appreciate you taking the time to stop by and get to know me a little better. You probably know me from my days as Uncle Junior in “The Sopranos”, as Johnny Ola in “The Godfather: Part II”, or even from “Boardwalk Empire”, as Leander Whitlock. Whatever the role, I have loved every minute of it.
I’ve been acting now for over 60 years and this will give you the inside scoop about some of my roles, as well as, my life outside of acting.
Though acting is my craft, bringing joy to elders is my passion. For the last 33 years, I have played my guitar at nursing homes. That’s why I created a charity called Joy Through Art. Our non-profit is dedicated to improving the lives of nursing home residents through regular interaction with professional artists, using music and theater techniques. These consistent visits are much more than a performance - the artist becomes like a family member.
