From Wikipedia

Anthony Denison (also credited as Anthony John Denison and as Tony Denison), is an American actor.

The eldest of three, he was born and raised in New York City‘s Harlem. Before acting he worked for John Hancock Insurance as a life insurance agent in Poughkeepsie, New York.

While he was at John Hancock, he also pursued his acting career, starring in several stage productions in the New Paltz, New Yorklocale. His stage surname “Denison” was taken from his friend Jan Denison during his days as an actor and director at a nonprofit theater in the late 1970s. Tony also ran a poker club in the early 1980s on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

He is well known for his role as mob boss Ray Luca on the 1980s NBC television show Crime Story which ran from 1986 to 1988.

Afterwards he starred and guest-starred in several crime movies and television programs, notably Wiseguy (in which he portrayed undercover agent John Henry Raglin), City of Hope (1991), The Amy Fisher Story (1993, as Joey Buttafuco), Getting Gotti (1994, as John Gotti), Criminal Passion (1994), and head coach Mike George in ESPN‘s drama series Playmakers. He was to appear on Charmed as the father of the main characters in the first season, but the part was recast with James Read.

He also had a recurring role as Aldo Burrows on the Fox series Prison Break. In 2000 he also played the role of a killer for hire in Walker, Texas Ranger.

His latest work is the recently completed movie Karla, in which he plays Detective Burrows. Denison is part of the regular cast as Detective Andrew Flynn in The Closer airing on TNT.

Watch for Major Crimes coming soon on TNT starring Mary McDonnell who I so enjoyed in Battlestar Gallactica. – JW
