biography of Turturro, Nicholas

29 January 1962, Queens, New York, USA
5' 8"
The whole Turturro clan and their extended family seem to have gotten into the show biz act at one time or another. The youngest of three boys, including famous older brother (by five years) 'John Turturro' (qv), Nicholas was born on January 29, 1962, and grew up in the Rosedale section of Queens, New York. After attending various Catholic schools, he graduated and majored in theater at Adelphi University for two years, but left to marry Jami Biunno and help raise their child, Erica. The couple later divorced. While working as a doorman at the St. Moritz Hotel in New York City, Nick managed to find a job as both an extra and voice-over artist in 'Spike Lee' (qv)'s _Do the Right Thing (1989)_ (qv) after brother John introduced Nick to Spike. Spike took an immediate interest in the rough-edged Nick and wrote a featured role for him in his next film _Mo' Better Blues (1990)_ (qv) in which John and Nick played repugnant Jewish brothers and co-owners of a club. Both the brothers went on to appear together again in Lee's _Jungle Fever (1991)_ (qv) and Nick also appeared in Lee's _Malcolm X (1992)_ (qv). Nick branched out on his own after this and earned parts in the movies _Federal Hill (1994)_ (qv) and _Excess Baggage (1997)_ (qv), and garnered serious TV attention as rookie detective "James Martinez" on _"NYPD Blue" (1993)_ (qv). His character was originally created as a foil to 'David Caruso (I)' (qv) star character, but he lost momentum after Caruso's early departure from the show. Still, he managed to hang around for seven seasons. Very dark in tone and complexion, the compact-framed Nick certainly has had a wealth of experience in mob drama, playing a young 'Al Capone' (qv) in one guest appearance, and assorted mobster types in other TV-movies. Plenty of guest-starring roles have also come his way with episodes of _"Law & Order" (1990)_ (qv), _"L.A. Law" (1986)_ (qv) and _"The Twilight Zone" (1985)_ (qv) and a recurring role on _"Third Watch" (1999)_ (qv). He has lightened up on a rare occasion in such comedies as _"The Drew Carey Show" (1995)_ (qv) and in a couple of failed pilots. On stage, Nick has appeared in "Wild Goose", "The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui" (with John) "Lusting After Popino's Wife" and "Siddown: Conversations With the Mob". Nick's never strayed too far from the family fold. He's appeared in a number of John's projects over the years that have also occasionally featured cousin 'Aida Turturro' (qv) (from _"The Sopranos" (1999)_ (qv) fame). His mother has also appeared in a few films, as has John's wife and sons. Nick remarried a number of years ago.
