Gianni Russo

actor, writer, producer

Gianni Russo was born on Dec 12, 1943 in USA. Gianni Russo's big-screen debut came with The Godfather directed by Francis Ford Coppola in 1972, strarring Carlo Rizzi. Gianni Russo is known for Seabiscuit directed by Gary Ross, David McCullough stars as Narrator and Jeff Bridges as Charles Howard. The upcoming new movie Gianni Russo plays is Con Man which will be released on Mar 02, 2018.

With a singularly nebulous background, which, by his account, included stints as a Las Vegas nightclub emcee, radio personality and jewelry tycoon, and with comparatively little acting experience, Gianni Russo won the role of Carlo Rizzi in Le Parrain (1972) on the basis of his screen test. Since then, Russo has remained busy as an actor, mostly playing assorted "wiseguys" and Mafia types. He appeared again with Marlon Brando in a small role in Premiers pas dans la Mafia (1990) where Brando parodied his Don Corleone role to good effect.
