03 Dec Drug Confession! Lillo Brancato Jr. Reveals He Was High on ‘Sopranos’ Set
On Wednesday, actor Lillo Brancato Jr., who first appeared in Robert De Niro’s 1993 directorial debut “A Bronx Tale,” spoke to “Extra’s” Tanika Ray at Universal Studios Hollywood about his new documentary “Wasted Talent.”
In 2008, Brancato Jr. fell from grace after an arrest for his involvement in the murder of an NYPD police officer following a drug excursion gone wrong. He spent eight years in prison on an attempted burglary conviction, and was released on parole in 2013.
“Wasted Talent” focuses on his life, chronicling his time in prison, his decision to get clean, and the struggle to redeem himself in Hollywood.
Of the documentary, Lillo shared, “Captures my rise, my fall, and my road to redemption. It’s by no means a puff piece.”
