Danny Aiello

Happy Birthday to

Danny Aiello

78 today

Veteran Italian-American character actor - he has a blink and you'll miss it role in The Godfather Part II - had a long but missable career as a heavy or cliched Mafia role until his searing portrayal of a Pizzeria owner who unwittingly starts a riot in Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing sealed his place in history. He's recently returned to work after a four year absence, although nothing he's working on looks like it's worth tuning in for.
