Really Famous with Kara Mayer Robinson

May 25, 2021

I’m happy to bring you a new, unfiltered talk with a fascinating person who’s famous, and yet, maybe you don’t know on a personal level!  Today it’s Lillo Brancato, star of A Bronx Tale, alongside Chazz Palminteri and Robert De Niro. Lillo also played Matt Bevilaqua on The Sopranos and he was the subject of the documentary Wasted Talent.

Lillo was a guest on Really Famous last year and it was pretty major, not gonna lie. He shared his whole story of becoming discovered – on the beach! – and getting involved with drugs, being involved in a fatal shooting, and going to prison. He also revealed his honest feelings about Chazz Palminteri, who was like a mentor to him, before things turned, well, they turned ugly.
