That Guy Actor of the Week: Frank Sivero

It’s nearly impossible not to recognize this guy when you see him because he couldn’t get any more Italian if he tried.   I mean come on.   That might be considered stereotyping but Frank Sivero has never playing anything but a stereotyped Italian guy.

All of you probably recognize him from Goodfellas but Sivero’s been around much longer than that.   He was in Godfather II where he played a friend to a young Don Corleone (played by Robert Da Niro).

I happened to like Sivero in the Wedding Singer because he got out of his element a little bit.   Anyway, Sivero’s been in nearly 50 titles, all of which in some way exploit his Italian heritage.
