About My Father is a semi-fictionalized account of comedian Sebastian Maniscalco and the relationship he’s got with his Italian immigrant father. To play the father, Maniscalco turned to the ultimate Italian-American actor, Robert De Niro, who agreed to take the role. He explained he wouldn’t have taken the role if it had been a stereotypical portrayal, but between the script (co-written by Maniscalco) and its director, he was confident about the role being worth his while.(Click on the media bar below to hear Robert De Niro)
