Hey guys, Jana here,
You might know this guy by his given name of Vince Curatola, if you’re like me though, you yelled “It’s Johnny Sack!” before you read the rest of the article. I’m a proud product of an HBO education and ‘The Sopranos‘ was my meat and potatoes. Curatola was absolutely perfect as Johnny Sack and was always being accused of being part of a certain Italian-American subculture. Now he’s found another role that seems cherry picked for him in CBS FIlms and Lionsgate’s project about the Boston Marathon bombing, ‘Patriots Day‘.
Curatola joins the production as Thomas Menino, the popular and longtime mayor of Boston. He was in his 20th year in office when terrorists attacked the annual marathon in April 2013. Curatola joins a cast that’s already got John Goodman, J.K. Simmons, Jimmy O. Yang and Mark Wahlberg in it. Director Peter Berg (‘Lone Survivor‘) works from a script by Matt Charman (‘Bridge of Spies‘).
The film is an account of Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis’s (Goodman) actions in the events leading up to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and the aftermath, which includes the city-wide manhunt to find the terrorists behind it.
