Anthony LaPaglia

Anthony LaPaglia[d]

A consummate actor, Anthony LaPaglia has played a variety of roles ranging from gangsters and cops to a drunken boor and the proprietor of a record store employing a group of misfit teens. He is equally adept at portraying creepy bad guys as he is at tragically flawed heroes. His ability to fluctuate between heart-wrenching sorrowful gazes and comedic hijinx has landed him several prestigious awards, including the 2004 Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series (Without a Trace) and the 2002 Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series (Frasier).

Although I've been a fan of Without a Trace since it began airing in 2002, my deep interest in Mr. LaPaglia came about when I conceived the character of Nick Fergessen in The Colonial Chronicles. I started out looking for pictures of his facial expressions to better capture them within the book, but ended up becoming a full-blown fangirl. Now I'm not only dedicated to finding a way to turn the book into a movie and have him play the lead role, but also to promoting him and all of his other projects. I believe that he may be one of the best actors I've ever seen, but he is woefully under-appreciated.

With most actors, even good ones, you can see some of the actor in the role. It doesn't matter, for instance, if Russell Crowe is playing a gladiator, a sea captain, or a mathematical genius; there's still a sense of Crowe hovering around the character. When LaPaglia plays a role, however - especially in his more recent films as his talent has deepened and his craft has become more perfected - it's far too easy to forget that he, the actor, is not the person we're seeing on the screen. Fans of Without a Trace often express a desire to hug Jack Malone when he's down while at the same time rejoicing that LaPaglia seems so happy during talk show interviews. Those who have seen LaPaglia play a bad guy frequently find themselves creeped out long after the fact, again despite realizing that the actor himself seems to be a pretty decent guy. He can deliver a malicious line with such intensity that the viewer cringes, but also smile so sweetly that fan hearts flutter.
