Ivy Leaf - Spring 2004

Joe Pantoliano


You've seen him as killer pimp Guido in Risky Business, cynical U.S. Marshall Cosmo Renfro in The Fugitive, turncoat Cypher in The Matrix, and on the landmark HBO series The Sopranos. And on March 4, Penn State Altoona students, faculty and staff saw actor Joe Pantoliano in his most recent appearance – answering questions and talking about his book in the College's Community Arts Center.

Boasting more than 100 film, television, and stage credits, Pantoliano also recently published Who's Sorry Now: The True Story of a Stand-Up Guy, a bittersweet memoir about his New Jersey childhood. He stopped off at Penn State Altoona to pick up his daughter - a student at the College - for spring break and spent the afternoon talking about his childhood memories, favorite roles and other questions posed to him by the audience.
