Bobby Cannavale

Bobby Cannavale Headshot

Actor

Birth Name: Roberto Michael Cannavale

Birth Date: May 3, 1970

Age: 54 years old

Birth Place: Union City, New Jersey

Spouses: Jenny Lumet

Children: Jake Cannavale

A native New Yorker who managed to avoid the ethnic typecasting that limited so many other actors with similar backgrounds, Bobby Cannavale was an Emmy Award-winning actor known for procedural TV dramas as well as big screen comedy and numerous Broadway accomplishments. Some of Cannavale's best-known roles found him in uniform like FDNY paramedic Bobby Caffey on "Third Watch" (NBC, 1999-2005), boss of "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" (2009), and his Emmy-winning guest appearances as Will's cop boyfriend on "Will & Grace" (NBC, 1998-2006). But while he certainly scored as "regular Joes" - including his charming work in the indie favorite "The Station Agent" (2003) - he easily adapted into a wide range of characters and consistently enjoyed cross-medium success that few actors could match. In fact, he translated his easygoing appeal across a wide spectrum of projects like "Snakes on a Plane" (2005) and "Fast Food Nation" (2006), while also appearing steadily on stage with roles in "Mauritius" (2008), "The Talk" (2008) and "The Motherf**ker with the Hat" (2011). Aside from indie features and stage roles, he landed parts in major blockbusters like "Tower Heist" (2011) and had memorable recurring roles on critically acclaimed series like "Boradwalk Empire" (HBO 2010-14) and "Nurse Jackie" (Showtime, 2009-2015) before starring in Martin Scorsese's '70s-set record industry drama "Vinyl" (HBO 2016) and joining the cast of cult favorite "Mr. Robot" (USA 2015- ) for its third season. Whether his role was large or small, Cannavale always delivered standout performances that garnered the actor considerable attention.
