Actor and Brooklyn native Joseph Bologna is probably best recognized as Michael Caine’s ne’er-do-well friend in Blame It on Rio, but he was first introduced to me on the short-lived musical television show Rags to Riches as Nick Foley, the adoptive father of five foster daughters.
Here’s a tasty tidbit I bet you didn’t know: Bologna and his wife of 45 years, Renée Taylor (The Nanny), are Academy Award-nominated writers for their work on the film Lovers and Other Strangers, based on the play they wrote of the same name.
