Michael Badalucco

Michael Badalucco received the 1999 Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series and was nominated in the same category for the 2000 Emmy Awards for his work on the ABC television series The Practice. Michael got his start in the entertainment industry at a very young age, going to work with his father who was a carpenter on movie sets. During the filming of Fail Safe starring Henry Fonda, a photo of a young boy was needed. Eight-year-old Badalucco posed for the picture, and thus began his acting career.

The summer of '99 saw Badalucco appear in his second Spike Lee film Summer of Sam as notorious serial killer David Berkowitz. His latest project is yet another film by the Coen Brothers Untitled Barber Movie, with Billy Bob Thornton.

His first speaking part in a feature film was in Raging Bull, which led to additional roles in such movies as Broadway Danny Rose, Miller's Crossing, Sleepless in Seattle, Jungle Fever, The Professional, Mac, One Fine Day, The Search for One-Eye Jimmy, and the recent hit You've Got Mail, with Tom Hanks.

Also on television, Badalucco has been seen in a guest-starring role on Law & Order as Davey, a mentally challenged man.

While earning a B.A. in theatre arts from SUNY New Paltz, Badalucco performed in more than 20 plays with the New Paltz Repertory company. His New York stage credits include Waiting for the Dough, The Tooth of Crime, Of Mice and Men, Steel on Steel, and "The Love of Don Perlimplin for Belsia in His Garden."

He and his wife, Brenda, make their home in New York City.
