Biography

There's a reason Brooklyn-born Tony Sirico has such a knack for playing hoods: he used to be one. After doing some hard time for armed robbery, Sirico opted to give up crime and take a stab at acting. From the late '70s on, he made a career of playing mob thugs and crooked cops in such films as Fingers and GoodFellas. However, it was his performance as wise guy Paulie "Walnuts" Gaultieri on HBO's The Sopranos that lifted Sirico from bit-player to acclaimed actor.

Genaro Anthony "Tony" Sirico, Jr. was born July 29, 1942 and is an American character actor who is most famous for his role as Paulie Gualtieri in the television series The Sopranos.

Sirico was born in Midwood, Brooklyn to Sicilian parents. Sirico has played gangsters in a number of films, including Mob Queen, Gangsters, Love and Money, Fingers, The Last Fight, Goodfellas, Innocent Blood, Bullets Over Broadway, The Pick-up Artist, Mighty Aphrodite, Gotti, Cop Land, and Mickey Blue Eyes. He also played policemen in the films Dead Presidents and Deconstructing Harry.

Before turning to acting, Sirico was reportedly a mob associate of the Colombo crime family serving under Carmine "Junior" Persico and had been arrested twenty-eight times. There is a Sopranos reference to this fact when Paulie says "I made it through the seventies by the skin of my nuts when the Colombos were goin' at it." In 1967, he was sent to prison for robbing a Brooklyn after hours club, but was released after serving thirteen months. In 1971, he pled guilty to felony weapons possession and was sentenced to an "indeterminate" prison term of up to four years, of which Sirico ended up serving twenty months. In an interview in Cigar Aficiando magazine, Siroco said that during his imprisonment, he was visited by an acting troupe composed of ex-cons, which inspired him to give acting a try. According to a court transcript, at the time of his sentencing, he also had pending charges for drug possession.

He currently lives alone in Brooklyn, New York. His mother died in 2003. Sirico's brother, Robert Sirico, is a priest and co-founder of the free-market Acton Institute.
