ABOUT JOE PANTOLIANO
Joe Pantoliano is known as one of our hardest-working and most accomplished actors on stage and screen. His range of characters in significant films and television series over the last 35 years is breathtaking. He has played important roles in such major motion pictures as RISKY BUSINESS, LA BAMBA, GOONIES, MIDNIGHT RUN, EMPIRE OF THE SUN, THE FUGITIVE, BOUND, THE MATRIX, BAD BOYS, DAREDEVIL and MEMENTO, working for such directors as Steven Spielberg, Richard Donner, Andrew Davis, Andy and Larry Wachowski and Christopher Nolan. His television work includes such landmark series as M.A.S.H., HILL STREET BLUES, HART TO HART, LA LAW, NYPD BLUE, ARLI$$, THE OUTER LIMITS, and of course, THE SOPRANOS, for which he won the Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in 2003.
Joey Pants, as he is affectionately nicknamed, was born in Hoboken NJ in 1951, the son of a hearse driver and part-time seamstress/bookie. Growing up in a broken home, Joey suffered from severe dyslexia, but discovered acting in high school and became determined to be a professional actor. Juggling acting classes with auditions and work as a waiter, he landed the role of Billy Bibbit in a touring production of ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOOS NEST in 1972. In 1974 he moved to Hollywood and was soon getting television work. A major moment in Joey’s career came when he played Maggio in the miniseries FROM HERE TO ETERNITY, recreating the role for which Frank Sinatra (Hoboken’s other favorite son) won an Oscar in the movie version. Since then, Joe has been one of America’s most recognized character actors. Who can forget his killer pimp Guido in RISKY BUSINESS, his bumbling criminal Fratelli in THE GOONIES, the double-crossing bail bondsman Eddie Moscone in MIDNIGHT RUN, the cynical Marshall Cosmo Renfro in THE FUGITIVE, the betrayed money-launderer Caeser in BOUND, the sympathetic traitor Cypher in THE MATRIX, or the shady sidekick Teddy in MEMENTO. And of course, he was the killer Ralphie in THE SOPRANOS.
