Tony Lo Bianco stars in "Kill the Irishman," alongside Ray Stevenson, Val Kilmer, Christopher Walken and Vincent D'Onofrio, as Jack Licavoli.

Tony Lo Bianco is not only known for his skills as a performer, but has extended his talents into directing, writing and producing as well. The New York born-and-bred tough guy and former Golden Gloves boxer has distinguished himself over the years with a variety of Italian blue-collar roles initially on stage and then on film and TV. Lo Bianco is adept at playing both sides of the law—the determined, streetwise cop and the corrupt politico and syndicate boss—embodying them with a dark, brooding, edgy intensity. He won an off-Broadway Obie Award as a waning baseball icon in "Yanks-3, Detroit-0, Top of the Seventh"; an Outer Critics Circle Award and a Tony nomination in Arthur Miller's "A View from the Bridge"; and received critical kudos for his one-man show "Hizzoner!" which was based on the life of Fiorello La Guardia, a show he later took to public television and won an Emmy Award.

Tony's film career started off promisingly enough with the cult classic "The Honeymoon Killers," in which he portrayed a cold-blooded ladies' man who, paired with a heavyset nurse, sought out wealthy, lonely women to swindle and murder. Over the years he has given added weight and dimension to such films as "The French Connection," "The Seven-Ups," "Bloodbrothers," "City of Hope," "Nixon" and "The Juror." Although he never quite found the right series to make himself a household name, he scored exceptionally well with such mini-movies as "Marciano," as fighter Rocky Marciano, and "Bella Mafia." He has directed such TV programs as "Police Story" and the feature film "Too Scared to Scream." In a solid career that has nearly reached the four decade mark, the durable Tony has brought to life a number of interesting hard-boiled characters.
