Chazz Palminteri is an Academy Award-nominated actor, writer and director best known for the iconic film, A Bronx Tale. He started out pursuing his craft by studying at the Actor’s Studio with Lee Strasberg and quickly landed roles on off-Broadway, Broadway and in television.
Well-known for his unique ability to create the lovable touch guy, Chazz wrote A Bronx Tale while a member at Theater West in LA. His Machiavellian fable was based on his childhood and life experiences growing up in his Italian-American Bronx neighborhood. Palminteri wrote the stage play and performed it as a one-man show in Los Angeles, quickly becoming the hottest property in Hollywood since Rocky. Mr. Palminteri was offered over $1 million to walk away from a project and with $200.00 left in the bank he refused. He wanted to play Sonny and write the screenplay, however the studios were not willing to give an unknown a shot. Until one night when Robert DeNiro walked in to see the show and, as they say, “the rest is history”. He then moved the production to a larger theatre in New York City where it played to rave reviews and four sold-out months earning him nominations for the New York Outer Critics Circle Awards for both acting and writing. While in New York, he completed the screenplay of A Bronx Tale and soon found himself starring opposite Robert DeNiro, who chose the script for his directorial debut.
Chazz has more than 55 movies to his credit including The Usual Suspects, Bullets Over Broadway, Analyze This, Hurlyburly, Mullholland Falls, Faithful, Poolhall Junkies, The Perez Family, Jade, Diabolique Down to Earth and A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, Final Recourse, Mighty Fine, Yonkers Joe, Jolene and The Dukes and Legend starring Tom Hardy. He has also directed the HBO series Oz, Showtime’s Women vs. Men, and the feature film NOEL starring Susan Sarandon, Penelope Cruz, Robin Williams and Paul Walker. He appeared on the New York Stage in the play The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui starring Al Pacino, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi and Billy Crudup. Currently filming in NYC, Chazz can be seen in next year’s newest drama series, Gangsters of Harlem alongside Forrest Whittaker and Vincent Donofrio.
