Turturro was honored Sunday night with a Career Achievement Tribute award as part of this year’s Miami International Film Festival, and the distinction extends not only to the 90-plus roles the character actor has brought to life in front of the camera but to the five features he has directed. Evan Golden was on the red carpet to catch up with Mr Turturro.
In his latest effort, the wistful comedy Fading Gigolo, the Golden Globe nominee plays Fioravante, a plumber who has fallen onto hard times.
About Fading Gigolo:
