You might not know his name, but film and TV actor Michael Badalucco has an undeniably recognizable face as the go-to person to play a cop (see: Juice, Clockers, One Fine Day) on the big screen. His most notable and Emmy Award-winning role, however, was as lawyer Jimmy Berluti on ABC’s The Practice.
It only makes sense that in his spare time, this native of Midwood takes pleasure in a good old-fashioned mystery novel.
Take a look at some of Michael’s book recommendations:
