Joe Mantegna on BlogTalkRadio

3/9/2008 7:05:00 AM

by Betty Jo Tucker


Im always fascinated by Joe Mantegna whenever I see him in a movie or television program and, in the case of The Simpsons, hearing him as Fat Tony. His dark, dangerous good looks and distinct voice add so much to the roles he chooses.

 With over 100 movies and TV shows to his credit, Mantegna has become one of those actors whose face may be more recognizable than his name. His most recent television appearances include “The Starter Wife,” for which he received an Emmy nomination, and “Criminal Minds,” in which he plays the intriguing David Rossi. I just finished watching his star turn in “The Last Hitman” DVD and am even more impressed now with his acting range. Mantegna’s new film, “Elvis & Anabelle,” has been selected for screening at this year’s upcoming Sonoma Valley Film Festival. In this gothic love story set in West Texas, Mantegna portrays a brain-damaged mortician. If anyone can pull that off, it’s this versatile actor!

Other Emmy nominations earned by Mantegna are his supporting work in “The Rat Pack” (playing Dean Martin) and in “The Last Don.” International acclaim for Mantegna came in 1988 when he was named Best Actor of the Year for “Things Change” at the Venice Film Festival and in 1992 when he earned the London Critics Circle Actor of the Year Award for “Homicide.”  Mantegna also won a Tony Award for “Glengarry Glen Ross” in 1984. Some of my favorite Mantegna films are “Searching for Bobby Fisher,” “House of Games,” “Above Suspicion,” “Stateside,” “ Bugsy” (he played George Raft),” Up Close and Personal” and “The Godfather 3.” 

I’m pleased to report that Mantegna has agreed to talk about “Elvis & Anabelle” on our next “Movie Addict Headquarters” show. On Tuesday, March 11, he will join me and producer Nikki Starr at 4 p.m. Eastern Time for a lively discussion of that film. Of course, we also plan to ask Mantegna about other highlights of his remarkable career.
