That Guy Actor of the Week: James Russo

Published by at 9:00 am under Columns

You might be familiar with James Russo but then again I’d hardly think you would know him by name.   Think back to Beverly Hills Cop and you might remember his tiny role as Axel’s friend Mikey who gets shot.

Russo has that “criminal” look to him and as such has consistently been placed in roles where he plays a kind of “skeezy” guy.   Either he’s a criminal or should be one.

I happen to like Russo in just about everything he’s in.  In particular he was awesome in We’re No Angels, Donnie Brasco, Extremities, and a whole bunch of others.  With 138 titles to his name, Russo belongs on this website.

A Russo clip after the jump….

This is a pretty solid dedication clip.
