Paul Sorvino

Actor

Born - 13 April 1939, New York City, USA
Died - 25 July 2022

Chunky, chubby-cheeked, very tall, cheerful-looking American actor with a mop of dark hair. Of Italian heritage, he found some interesting leading roles in Hollywood of the 1970s and 1980s before moving to character parts. A frustrated Mario Lanza who took singing lessons for 18 years, he worked in advertising until breaking into TV commercials at 30, then dramatic parts. Amazingly never nominated for an Oscar, his many films include Where's Poppa? (1970), Made for Each Other (1971), The Panic in Needle Park (1971), A Touch of Class (1972), Day of the Dolphin (1973), The Gambler (1974), I Will...I Will for Now (1975), Oh, God! (1977), Bloodbrothers (1978), Lost and Found (1979), Cruising (1980), Reds (1981), Off the Wall (1983), A Fine Mess (1985), Dick Tracy (1990), GoodFellas (1990), The Rocketeer (1991), The Firm (1993), William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet (1996), Bulworth (1998), 10 Cents a Dance (2000), The Cooler (2003), Mr Fixit (2005), Last Hour (2008), Kill the Irishman (2011), A Place for Heroes (2014), Undercover Grandpa (2017), Most Guys Are Losers (2020) and The Ride (2022), his last. A longtime sufferer from severe asthma, he was three times married; the Oscar-winning actress Mira Sorvino is his daughter.
