Vincent D'Onofrio Goes From Hitman To Crime Boss In New TV Series 'Godfather Of Harlem'

Playing men of power is nothing new for Vincent D'Onofrio, who continues to portray Wilson Fisk (aka the Kingpin) on the Marvel Netflix superhero series Daredevil, and the Wizard of Oz himself in the short-lived, dramatic NBC fantasy show Emerald City. Well, the actor is ready to take on another such role — though grounded considerably more than the others in reality — this time starring opposite Forest Whitaker on the Epix television true crime series Godfather of Harlem. Given a straight to series order by the network, the show sees Vincent as Vincent "Chin" Gigante, a former boxer who few take seriously... but should. He appears dimwitted, but his mind is always working — to the point where he feigns insanity to avoid prosecution, and the series will chart his rise in the Genovese crime family as a hitman to, ultimately, boss of the family.

As “BlacKkKlansman” hit theaters this weekend, Emmy nominee Vincent D’Onofrio found himself in a position familiar to that film’s co-star, Topher Grace. In Spike Lee’s Cannes prizewinner, Grace portrays longtime white supremacist David Duke, who made headlines at last year’s “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. On Saturday, D’Onofrio asked his 180,000 Twitter followers for feedback on whether he should accept a role in an unannounced television show that would task him with playing an “irredeemable racist” based on a real person:

Image Source: Netflix

The first season of 13 Reasons Why captured our attention for a number of reasons - the gripping story, the unflinching approach to teen suicide, the dramatic twists - but none of it would be as successful if it wasn't for the talented young cast. One of the standout performances in both season one and two comes from Christian Navarro, who plays the wise, leather-jacket-clad Tony.

While season one makes his character much more mysterious, season two digs in to his character. We get to watch Tony struggling with some serious inner turmoil, falling in love, and helping Clay make sense of the aftermath of Hannah's death. Wondering where you've seen him before?
