Gianni Russo Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

With a singularly nebulous background, which, by his account, included stints as a Las Vegas nightclub emcee, radio personality and jewelry tycoon, and with comparatively little acting experience, Gianni Russo won the role of Carlo Rizzi in The Godfather (1972) on the basis of his screen test. Since then, Russo has remained busy as an actor, ...

#Fact
1He appeared in two Best Picture Academy Award winners: The Godfather (1972) and The Godfather: Part II (1974).
2According to a newspaper report, it was Russo --a native of Staten Island--who led The Godfather (1972) producers to a house on this island borough of New York City that eventually was used to shoot exteriors of the Corleone estate. Reportedly, the owner of the home later re-modeled inside to make it look as much as possible like the interior scenes in the first "Godfather" film.
3After gaining his debut role in The Godfather (1972) , Russo hinted to journalists that he had used real-life Mafia connections to get the part. Author Mario Puzo poured scorn on this claim, saying that if he really had done this, he would have been murdered for revealing the fact.
4Appeared in The Godfather (1972), which was the first film to have a sequel that won a Best Picture Oscar. This feat was only accomplished by two other subsequent movies: The Silence of the Lambs (1991) (sequel to Manhunter (1986)), and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003). Coincidentally, Russo later appeared in Red Dragon (2002), a remake of Manhunter (1986), that used the novel's original title.
5When he filmed the reality-TV show Growing Up Gotti (2004), Russo revealed that he was a secret admirer of Victoria Gotti. After he sent her roses, Ms. Gotti's assistant met and screened him for what was to be a surprise meeting with Victoria, and found out about his famous role in The Godfather (1972). Later, Victoria was taken to a restaurant, but she was mortified to see Gianni performing songs from his new CD, and she left.
6Had a 12-year relationship with singer/actress Dionne Warwick.
7He suffered from polio as a child.
