Life Story of Chazz Palminteri

Bronx-born and raised Chazz Palminteri was a natural choice to continue the Italianate torch in film. In the tradition set forth in the 1970s by such icons as director Martin Scorsese and actors Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, John Cazale and Joe Pesci, Palminteri has brought grit, muscle and an evocative realism to the sidewalks of his New York neighborhood, violent as they are and were.

Chazz was born Calogero Lorenzo Palminteri in 1952 in the Bronx, New York, the son of Rose, a homemaker, and Lorenzo Palminteri, a bus driver. He grew up in a tough area of the Bronx, giving him the life lessons that would later prove very useful to his career. He graduated from Theodore Roosevelt High School and started out pursuing his craft in 1973 studying at the Actor's Studio. He appeared off-Broadway in the early 1980s while paying his dues as a bouncer and doorman in nightclubs, among other jobs.

In 1986 he headed west and found that his ethnic qualifications was well-suited for getting tough-talker parts. Slick attorneys, unflinching hoods and hard-nosed cops were all part of his ethnic streetwise persona in such TV shows as Wiseguy (1987), Matlock (1986) and Hill...

Chazz Palminteri in Poolhall Junkies (2002)

He was initially offered $250,000, then a seven-figure amount, for the film rights to his play "A Bronx Tale," but he refused to sell out, insisting that he write the screenplay and play the lead, which he did (A Bronx Tale (1993)).

Although "A Bronx Tale" was his first play, he had written skits for a comedy troupe for about four or five years prior to that.

Chazz Palminteri and Jessica Chastain in Jolene (2008)

Filmed a very eloquent voice-over eulogy to Edward G. Robinson for TCM, where he pays moving tribute to the great Golden Age actor, and where he beautifully showcases the emotional nuances and fine subtleties in Robinson's acting. It airs every few years on TCM.
