Vincent D’Onofrio (Father Dan) will be Vincent Gigante, future boss of the Genovese crime family, in GODFATHER OF HARLEM. The miniseries tells the story of mobster Bumpy Johnson (played by Forest Whitaker) who returned to Harlem after ten years in prison and found his neighbourhood controlled by the Genovese family. Johnson waged a brutal battle to regain control, and in the process, formed an alliance with Malcolm X (Nigel Thatch). (The film is set after the Valachi hearings in the 1960s, when Vito Genovese was in prison.) Joanne Kelly (WAREHOUSE 13) appears in three episodes as Amy Vanderbilt. The ten episode series will be on EPIX sometime in the fall.
D’Onofrio is also Sheriff Romero in THE KID, the story of Rio (Jake Shur) and his older sister Sarah (Leila George) who inadvertently get tangled up in Pat Garrett’s pursuit of Billy the Kid. THE KID can be streamed on Amazon Prime Video, and on Google Play. Continue reading →
