Biography

Nicholas Turturro, (born January 29, 1962) is an American actor, known for his role as Sergeant James Martinez on the television series NYPD Blue. Nicholas is the younger brother of John Turturro and the cousin of Aida Turturro.

Turturro was born in Brooklyn, New York. His mother, Katherine Florence (Incerella), was an amateur jazz singer, who worked in a Navy yard during World War II, and was born in the U.S., to Italian parents, with roots in Sicily.[2] His father, Nicholas Turturro, Sr., was a carpenter and shoemaker who emigrated from Giovinazzo, Italy at the age of six and fought as a Navy serviceman on D-Day.[3][4][5] In 1983, Turturro, then a struggling actor, was employed as a doorman for the apartment building where Billy Joel resided at the time. Turturro would rank all the women Joel brought home by holding up his fingers; Joel's soon-to-be wife, Christie Brinkley, was the only one to get ten fingers twice.[6]
