Tony Danza          

Actor, Producer & Author

Perhaps best known for his loveable sitcom personas, Tony Danza is indisputably one of America's most popular performers. Having starred on some of television's most beloved and long-running series, Danza has also established himself as a veritable stage and screen star, as well as a respected producer.

Producer Stu Sheslow discovered Danza at a boxing gymnasium in New York. Sheslow's discovery led producer James Brooks to cast Danza in the critically acclaimed series "Taxi". Following his five-year run on "Taxi", Danza starred in the ABC comedy series - "Who's the Boss?" for eight seasons and also directed multiple episodes.

Among his motion picture credits are Angels in the Outfield, She's Out of Control, A Brooklyn State of Mind, Glam, and Illtown. He also wrote, directed and starred in the short film Mamamia. Eventually Tony explored his love for the stage, and among his many stage credits is his exciting run on Broadway in Mel Brooks's hit musical The Producers.

He wrote the book, "I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had: My Year as a Rookie Teacher at Northeast High", a much buzzed about and critically acclaimed reflection of his experience teaching for a year.

After Hurricane Sandy, Danza was amongst the iconic celebrities who participated in the historic relief concert at Madison Square Garden. In April of 2013, USA Today honored Tony at their annual National Make A Difference Day Awards for his commitment to helping others through his numerous charity efforts.
