Carmine Giovinazzo

When a serious back injury sidelined Carmine Giovinazzo in college, his dreams of becoming a professional baseball player were put aside in favor of acting. In 1997, he left his native New York to try his luck in Los Angeles. He appeared in short and independent films before getting his break in the pilot episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

His feature film credits include Black Hawk Down, The Red Zone, Billy's Hollywood Screen Kiss, For Love of the Game, The Big Brass Ring and the upcoming In Enemy Hands.

His television credits include guest-starring roles in The Guardian and CSI, both on CBS, as well as UC: Undercover and Providence.

Giovinazzo's role as a CSI investigator with a long history of family in law enforcement mirrors his real life family situation as both his father and sister were NYPD officers and his brother-in-law was a detective assigned to former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani.

When not acting, Giovinazzo pursues his other passions--painting, poetry and playing guitar. For the past few years, he has been writing a film for an ensemble cast titled The Brink of Black.

Giovinazzo was born and raised in New York and lives in Los Angeles.
