It’s not often you find someone who is so profound and has the utmost expertise at his craft as does the iconic Joe Mantegna. With 50 awe-inspiring years under his belt working on some of the most renowned and remarkable projects, Mantegna is nothing short of a true asset to the entertainment business. He spent 15 years bringing the character of David Rossi to life in the critically-acclaimed series, Criminal Minds. He also shared his acting prowess in projects including the esteemed Godfather films and has lent his voice to Springfield’s mob boss, Fat Tony in The Simpsons. It’s difficult to enumerate all of the stupendous accomplishments and unequaled successes in Mantegna’s career as there are just too many.
The impact Joe Mantegna has made in the acting world is beyond compare. But, one of the most meaningful projects for him is his work in the all new Amazon original series, As We See It. The series follows three young adults who are on the autistic spectrum as they navigate adulthood. The project is incredibly special for Mantegna as he has a daughter who is on the autistic spectrum.
Mantegna is a man of many talents – a brilliant actor, a terrific producer, a sensational director, and one title he truly excels at most – a loving and exceptional father.
