Tony was discovered for his role in TAXI at a local boxing gymnasium, but actually went to college on wrestling scholarship. He was born in Brooklyn, but grew up on Long Island. Tony was nominated several times for the Emmy and Golden Globes and was also a People’s Choice Best Male Performer Award for WHO’S THE BOSS.
Tony had a talk show and more recently released a cookbook with his son: Don’t Fill Up on the Antipasto: Tony Danza’s Father-Son Cookbook.
