Ordinary Joe

You're not likely to see me on TV anytime soon. My best hope is in the movies, in case John Goodman ever does a nude scene and wants a body double. But there's always hope, thanks to a guy named Joe Viterelli.

You may not have heard of him, but you've probably seen him - he was an actor with a face that was, um, memorable. Check him out here, here, here, and the interview here.

Note the credits further down the page. Near as I can tell he was severely typecast as a bad guy or Mafioso, yet that's not a bad list of credits.

But there will be no more. Mr. Viterelli died of a stomach hemorrhage just a few weeks ago on January 28.
