Brian Tarantina


Born - 27 March 1959, New York City USA
Died - 2 November 2019

Round-faced, relaxed-looking American character actor with a mop of centre-parted dark hair, often seen in gangster movies or in comedy supporting roles, but almost always as blue-collar types. Facially reminiscent of John Ritter, he made his debut in The Cotton Club (1984) and worked steadily for the remainder of his relatively brief career: Critical Condition (1987), Uncle Buck (1989), Born on the Fourth of July (1989), Jacob's Ladder (1990), Carlito's Way (1993), The Jerky Boys (1995), The Associate (1996), Donnie Brasco (1997), Summer of Sam (1999), The Talented Mr Ripley (1999), The Photographer (2000), Terminal Velocity (2002), City by the Sea (2002), Trust the Man (2005), A Crime (2006), Ghost Town (2008), Knight and Day (2010), Rob the Mob (2013), Zarra'a Law (2014), Lucky Number (2015), BlacKkKlansman (2018) and The Kitchen (2019), his last. He was found dead from a probable drug overdose following months of heart problems.
