• A Bronx Tale Actor Lillo Brancato Remembers Meeting Notorious B.I.G.

    A Bronx Tale and The Sopranos actor Lillo Brancato was living the Hollywood life before a drug problem, and jail time, derailed his promising career. Recently, he recalled kicking it with some talented rappers before the drama; especially with the late great the Notorious B.I.G. on many occasions.

    Lillo Brancato is a Colombian-born American Actor, known for his performance as "Calogero Anello" in Robert De Niro's 1993 directorial debut, A Bronx Tale. He also played Matthew Bevilaqua, a young mobster on The Sopranos.

    In December 2005, Brancato was charged with second-degree murder for his role in a burglary in the Bronx, New York in which an off-duty police officer, Daniel Enchautegui, confronted two burglars and was killed in a shootout. Brancato was subsequently acquitted of murder, but was convicted of first-degree attempted burglary and sentenced to 10 years in prison. He was released on parole on December 31, 2013.
