Michael Rispoli is an American character actor.[1] He was a contender for the role of Tony Soprano in the HBO television series The Sopranos,[2] but was ultimately cast as Jackie Aprile Sr., a reoccurring character in the show’s first season. Rispoli reunited with Sopranos co-star James Gandolfini in the 2009 thriller The Taking of Pelham 123.

Early life and education

Rispoli, a second-generation Italian American, was raised in Tappan, New York, one of eight children,[3][4] and attended Tappan Zee High School, where he played football.[5] He majored in theater at State University of New York at Plattsburgh and graduated in 1982.[6]


The feature film Union Square (co-written and directed by Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Award winner, Nancy Savoca) premiered in 2011 at the Toronto International Film Festival: Rispoli co-stars with Mira Sorvino, Patti LuPone, Tammy Blanchard, Mike Doyle, and Daphne Rubin-Vega.

He also starred in the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Between Riverside and Crazy by Stephen Adly Guirgis.
