His father was an actor, his mother a model, and he quit school at age 14 to act full-time. Though he should probably make some kind of “Don’t try this at home” public service announcement, it worked out for him.
Italians love him for a movie we can’t get here in the US, Romanzo Criminal, a wildly popular movie about organized crime in Rome.
But we’re in luck; we can stream his highly entertaining Vallanzasca – Gli Angeli del Male (Angel of Evil) with Amazon Instant.
He’s 45 today and better than ever. If you are in Italy or have access to an Italian or region free DVD player, you won’t want to miss one of his best performances in Daniele Luchetti’s Anni Felici (Those Happy Years). We’ll see him next year in the highly anticipated new movie from the Taviani Brothers, Meraviglioso Boccaccio.
