Glenn Scarpelli

  1. C Thomas Howell, The Outsiders, 1982.    Part of Francis Coppola’s intensive ensemble casting sessions at Stage Five of his Zoetrope Studios – “go right on Marlon Brando Way. Follow it to Budd Schulberg Avenue and it’s just next to the commissary.” During the auditons, Coppola would switch 30 young actors around from this role to that, back to this and then into a whole other one… Other young actors seen for Ponyboy Curtis were Tom Cruise and Anthony Michel Hall, for the movie that launched Cruise, Matt Dillon, Rob Lowe, Judd Nelson and Patrick Swayze.  But not New Yorker Scarpelli. His career consisted of 18 screen roles during 1975-2019.
