#Marks / Signs
1Tough, bullying characters.


1I get a lot of calls for New York-oriented things, mob parts, cop roles. I think they stereotype me by size; that's a bit of a pitfall. Some people bring me in for the big gentle guy or these killers. It's hard to figure out what they think of me.


1Has two daughters and a son.
2He worked as a bouncer and bartender before landing a small part in Cruising (1980) in 1980.
3Was born in Flushing, Queens to a retail employee mother and a meatpacker father.
4Graduate of Hofstra University.
5Younger brother of Beau Starr.
