Phillip Bosco

  1. Jon Polito, Miller’s Crossing, 1990.  The Coen brothers tackle 30s/40s, gangster noir… Their 1988 draft had Bosco, Michael Gambon, Michael Gazzo, Joe Mantegna and John Seitz suggested for Italian crime boss Johnny Caspar, arch rival of Albert Finney’s Irish gang leader, Leo O’Bannion. The Coens had wanted Polito to play Eddie Dane, but he asked to be Caspar… in the first of his five films for the brothers during 1900-2000.
