Alessandro Nivola

The Boston-born actor, appearing next month in the Broadway revival of The Elephant Man and the film A Most Violent Year, chats with T+L about his Italian roots, fireworks, and his secret New York watering hole.

At night they’d play on the porch of a little juke joint. The music that came out of there is incredible. My dad was three when his family moved to Dyess, Arkansas, a colony created for poor families during the Depression. When I was 12, my dad took us for a visit. I couldn’t believe he’d grown up there. I’ve said no to almost all the Johnny Cash projects that have come across my plate, but when Arkansas State University bought the house and told me they wanted to restore it, I said, yeah, I’ll get involved.
