Biography

Spindly character player of stage, screen, and TV who is best known for his memorable supporting role in "Jurassic Park" (1993) as Donald Gennaro, the cowardly lawyer. Prior to that blockbuster, Ferrero was probably most widely seen on TV in the recurring role of Izzy Moreno, a craven informant on "Miami Vice" (NBC, 1984-89). He also turned up periodically playing a shyster lawyer on "Shannon's Deal" (NBC, 1990-91), a short-lived legal drama created by John Sayles. Clearly Ferrero's shifty visage does not inspire trust.
