Biography

A talented Canadian actor, Enrico Colantoni cut his professional teeth on the stage, notching many acclaimed theatrical performances and graduating from the Yale School of Drama. After a memorable pair of guest spots on "NYPD Blue" (ABC, 1993-2005), the actor landed series regular roles on the short-lived "Hope & Gloria" (NBC, 1995-96) and the long-running "Just Shoot Me!" (NBC, 1997-2003). As the ladies' man photog Elliot DiMauro, Colantoni charmed audiences, and he subsequently earned small roles in high-profile films like "Stigmata" (1999), "Galaxy Quest" (1999) and "Contagion" (2011). He hit another career high with a beloved turn as the detective father of Kristen Bell's "Veronica Mars" (UPN, 2004-06; The CW, 2006-07) before earning a Best Actor Gemini nomination for his star turn heading the Canadian cop drama "Flashpoint" (CTV, 2008- ). Always highly in-demand as a character actor, Colantoni saw his American profile boosted yet again with a strong recurring role as an ambitious Mafioso on "Person of Interest" (CBS, 2011- ). A familiar face to viewers in both America and Canada, Enrico Colantoni built a quiet but enormously impressive career that saw him more in demand with each passing year.
