Brancato was charged with second-degree murder in December 2005 for his participation in a robbery in the Bronx, New York, in which an off-duty police officer, Daniel Enchautegui, confronted two robbers and was shot dead in a shootout.

Early life

Brancato was born Saul Rodriguez in Bogota, Colombia, on August 30, 1976. He was adopted at four months old by Lillo Brancato Sr., a construction worker, and Domenica, an electrolysist, in Yonkers, New York, New York. Brancato attended Mount Saint Michael Academy. Vinny, his adopted brother, served as a fashion model and now works as a Yonkers civil servant.

Despite being born in Colombia, Brancato has said, "I consider myself Italian." I was raised to eat pasta." Brancato was discovered in 1992, while swimming at Jones Beach, New York, by a talent scout who noticed Brancato's similarity to Robert De Niro. Brancato was a fan of De Niro and impressed the investigator with a rendition of Travis Bickle from Taxi Driver. In A Bronx Tale, De Niro's son was given the role.


Lillo Brancato Jr. Career


Brancato appeared in three films in the mid-1990s, before he joined the cast of The Sopranos. According to New York Magazine, Brancato played Calogero 'C' Anello, a teenager torn between his father and a mob boss who befriended him as a child. He appeared in Renaissance Man (1994) and then played a minor but climactic role as a radio operator in Crimson Tide (1995).

Brancato appeared in Matthew Bevilaqua, a young mobster associated with Tony Soprano's crime syndicate, in the second season of The Sopranos, which HBO broadcast in 2000. Bevilaqua first appeared in "Guy Walks into a Psychiatrist's Office" in the second season premiere and appeared in five more episodes. The character was killed in "From Where to Eternity" before appearing in flashback on "Bust Out." Brancato appeared in the television series Falcone as a mobster. Brancato continued to appear in 'R Xmas (2001), associating Sopranos cast member Drea de Matteo, and appeared opposite Eddie Murphy as Larry in The Adventures of Pluto Nash (2002).

Brancato's last film before being arrested in 2005 for first-degree robbery was Saturday Morning, which was released in 2007. All of Brancato's scenes were cut out of the film's scenes during post-production by the producer, whose brother-in-law is a police officer. Brancato made his return to acting with Back in The Day (2016) following his release from prison in 2013. He has since appeared in films including Dead on Arrival (2017), a D.O.A. revival. (1950), and 5th Borough (2020). Brancato can be heard narrating the music video for the Chris Brown and Young Thug song "City Girls," which was released on December 4, 2020.
