Biography

Best known for his dramatic turn as "Wild Bill" Guarnere in the HBO World War II mini-series "Band of Brothers," Bronx-born Frank John Hughes earned a lifetime membership at the prestigious Actors' Studio at 19, one of the youngest ever to have earned that distinction. A man of many passions, Hughes studied jazz composition at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, and has had his poetry published in the renowned New York Quarterly. Though he broke into film in 1990 with a supporting role in the fish-out-of-water romantic-comedy "Lonely in America," Hughes maintained his survival job as a furniture mover for 10 years to better support his wife and family. Much of the 1990s was spent building his reputation with a number of supporting roles in film and TV, including a stint as a cast member on the short-lived crime drama "Players," which starred rapper Ice-T. Hughes's big break came in 2001, when he was cast in the acclaimed Steven Spielberg miniseries "Band of Brothers." His portrayal of a brave soldier drew notice, and led to a small role as an FBI agent in Spielberg's thrilling biopic "Catch Me If You Can" in 2002. Since then, Hughes has become a common figure in crime-related dramas, landing recurring roles in the Mafia drama series "The Sopranos" and the count-down thriller "24." In 2008, he appeared alongside fellow New York-born actors Robert De Niro and Al Pacino in the taut crime drama "Righteous Kill."
