Biography

Supporting and occasional lead actor Tony Lo Bianco is perhaps best known as a television actor, but he has also found success on-stage and in films. The New York native specializes in playing streetwise Italians. He started out in theater and made his feature film debut in The Honeymoon Killers (1969) as a murderous gigolo involved with an overweight nurse. He subsequently went on to appear, primarily as a character actor, in low-budget and major features. On television, he guest starred on numerous series and has appeared in such miniseries as Bella Mafia (1997) and made-for-television outings like Jesus of Nazareth (1977). Lo Bianco has also directed episodes of television series such as Police Story and Cliffhangers. In 1985 he directed Too Scared to Scream. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
