Famous for his Emmy Award winning role as mobster Ralph Cifaretto on HBO’s “The Sopranos”, actor, author and mental health activist Joe Pantoliano takes us behind the scenes of shooting his new film “From The Vine”, the story of a downtrodden CEO who travels back to his Nonno’s vineyard in Italy. The prolific character actor dishes on his roles in iconic films like “Risky Business”, “Midnight Run”, “The Matrix” and “Momento”, and opens up about his family and his own journey from mental illness, to wellness, to running his own charity “No Kidding, Me Too!”. Joe reveals what he thinks a post-Covid-19 theatre and film world will look like and laments the loss of value of his American passport during the pandemic.

On this week’s The Richard Crouse Show we meet:

Joe Pantoliano, a working actor for over forty years. From doing plays in empty basement theatres in New York City to Broadway to guest roles on the biggest television shows of several decades like “M*A*S*H” and “The Sopranos” and juicy supporting parts in films like “Risky Business,” “The Goonies,” “The Fugitive,” “Memento,” “Bad Boys” and “The Matrix” he says “There aren’t any small parts, only small paychecks.”

He jokes that he has a twenty-minute face, perfect for character work but his new film, “From the Vine” offers him the chance to show off his ninety-minute face. His first starring role in recent memory sees him playing a man who gives up a high-flying career as an executive to return to Italy, where he was born, to search for find his centre and regain his moral compass. In this interview we talk about the parallels between his life and that of his “From the Vine” character, Jimmy Stewart’s wig and how “On the Waterfront” made him want to be an actor… and here’s a surprise. It had nothing to do with Marlon Brando.

Let’s get to know Joe Pantoliano.

Then we meet hip hop musician, former elementary school teacher and author Humble the Poet. He stopped by the “Pop Life” bar to discuss his new book “Things No One Else Can Teach Us,” what he learned from his failures, including a bad record deal, how even after he crawled out of crippling debt, the satisfaction was short lived and much more.

Finally we close with legendary rock photographer Mick Rock who talks about his collaboration with David Bowie.

Episode 1131 - Joe Pantoliano

Play

Joe Pantoliano is widely known for playing bad guys, lowlifes and disreputable characters. He even has his own pseudo-Mafioso nickname: Joey Pants. But Joe tells Marc the reason he got so good at playing bad guys is because he was always bullied when he was younger. Tapping into that helped him with his acting, but he had to wait until later in life to tap into the cause of his depression, which was tied up in his complicated parentage and inescapable genetics. They also talk about some of his best known roles from The Sopranos, The Fugitive, Midnight Run and more. This episode is sponsored by Tournament of Laughs on TBS, HBO Max, and Ben & Jerry's.

Guido the killer pimp. Ralphie, the killer. Period. Joe Pantoliano, aka Joey Pants, scared me.

Joey's appeared in innumerable iconic films of varying genres. His work includes : The Idolmaker(a personal favorite), Risky Business, The Goonies, La Bamba, Midnight Run, Bad Boys I and II, Empire of the Sun, The Fugitive, The Matrix, Memento, and Daredevil, to name but some. Most notably perhaps, his Ralphie in The Sopranos, which earned him a best-supporting actor Emmy.

A New York Times bestselling author, when I asked him to read at Women Who Write from his 2nd book, Asylum, chronicling his personal battle with depression, with each question he asked, I began to sweat. I’d hate to get whacked because of my lousy cooling system. He ended up being one of the warmest, earnest, most real and accessible guests we’ve had.

Now, some years later, when I emailed him to ask him to guest on TRT, he shot me his digits and picked up the phone as if we’d spoken the day before. He was cooking dinner for his daughter just before our conversation. How can a guy like that scare me?

Joey's an open book about his family, career and his battle with depression. He's worked hard at all of them to make them work. He's the founder of No Kidding Me Too ~ The Celebrity Advocacy- To eliminate the shame & obliterate the blame of brain dis-ease. Thoughtful, inspiring, and funny as hell.... the conversation digs deep and soars with levity.

He's got a load of work in various stages of production... fan favorite Sense8, and the just dropped, Random Tropical Paradise, which hit theatres last week, to name but two.

A lovely, albeit sometimes scary, man, I adore him. You will, too. Or, at least pretend you do... ya know... for your own good.
