John Michael Turturro (born February 28, 1957) is an Italian-American character actor, writer and filmmaker known for his roles in the films Do the Right Thing (1989), Miller’s Crossing (1990), Barton Fink (1991), Quiz Show (1994), The Big Lebowski (1998), O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000) and four entries in the Transformers film series, most recently The Last Knight (2017). He has appeared in over sixty films and has worked frequently with the Coen brothers, Adam Sandler and Spike Lee.
Quiz Show gets overlooked when we talk about great films from the nineties but it really shouldn’t. It has aged exceptionally well and is in many ways more relevant today than during its initial run.
