Bobby Cannavale's Star Keeps Shining Brightly Thanks to “Annie” & his HBO Series

Bobby Cannavale's Star Keeps Shining Brightly Thanks to “Annie” & his HBO Series
BY WINNIE BONELLI
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Why wait until tomorrow? Bobby Cannavale’s career is already brighter than the noon day sun. Next Friday (Dec. 19) finds him costarring in a contemporary retelling of the ironic orphan “Annie” tale. Then later this season he returns to HBO to headline a series called an "Untitled Rock 'n' Roll Project."

When fans of HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” last spotted Cannavale’s fictional psychopathic Prohibition bootlegger Gyp Rosetti, he was getting wacked. For his criminal turn, the Hudson County City native walked off with the 2013 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

He’s come a long way from his roots. “When I grew up in Union City there weren’t many role models around. The biggest influences in my life were my parents who kept me off the streets and out of trouble,” he recalled. One thing he knew for certain is that he wanted to be an actor and spent hours in St. Michael’s Catholic School library reading plays.
