Despite a childhood disease that left him only 4’10 and 85 pounds, and looking decades younger than his actual age, Mario Bosco has persevered with Brooklyn tenacity that brought him from “Hopeless to Hollywood”—the tentative title of his forthcoming autobiography. Mario talked his way onto Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he bantered with Jimmy and Denzel Washington. He became good friends with Jimmy and has worked on comedy skits for the show. He has also been on NYPD Blue and was recently featured on NET TV’s Christmas Special.
