Richard S. Castellano - Rotten Tomatoes

Richard S. Castellano



American actor Richard Castellano spent the bulk of his career playing character roles on-stage, but he occasionally ventured into feature films and has also appeared on television. He began his career with the New Yiddish Theater in the early '60s. Prior to that, Castellano ran a construction company. In 1964, he starred in Arthur Miller's off-Broadway production of A View From the Bridge. The heavy-set and swarthy Castellano specialized in playing "ethnic" roles and was particularly good at playing Italian-Americans. In 1970, he received an Academy Award Best Supporting Actor nomination for reprising his Tony-nominated Broadway role in Lovers and Other Strangers. His television work includes starring roles in two short-lived series: The Super (1972) and Joe and Sons (1975-1976). In both, he played blue-collar working men. At the time of his death, Castellano and his wife, Ardell Sheridan, were penning a history of method acting.
