About Anthony LaPaglia
Born in Australia, Anthony LaPaglia moved to the United States at the age of 30 where he first worked as a teacher before getting his first small roles on television.
He made his first film appearance in 1987 in On the Razor’s Edge alongside Sharon Stone and then in Slaves of New York, directed by James Ivory. This was followed by a series of small roles mainly Italian mafioso as in Betsy’s Wedding. But his naturalness seduces and he appears in the early 90s in increasingly important roles including the New York saga 29th street, the thriller Intimate Confessions or the horror film Innocent Blood.
If he is often confined to the same types of characters (the policeman or the Italian mafioso) in American productions, Anthony LaPaglia finds his most beautiful roles in his country of origin, Australia. He was, moreover, acclaimed by critics for The Custodian, The Bank and especially Lantana for which he received an Australian Film Institute Award for Best Actor.
In 2002, after having acted under the direction of Woody Allen (Agreements and Disagreements), Spike Lee (Summer of Sam) or Billy Crystal (Mafia Blues 2 – the relapse), he took on the costume of FBI agent Jack Malone for the first season of the television series FBI: Missing Persons. The series meets a huge success. Thanks to this role, Anthony LaPaglia acquired international recognition and won a Golden Globe in 2003.
Central figure of FBI: Missing Persons, Anthony LaPaglia is logically rarer in the cinema … but finds time for some vocal appearances. He lends his voice to the animated films Happy Feet (2006) and The Meaning of Life for $9.99 (2009).
