“Cannavale’s mother, Isabel, left Cuba in 1960 and moved to Union City, N.J. Her family lived across the street from the Cannavales; she fell in love with Sal, who worked at a chemical plant in Hoboken. “They were married when she was 16; she had me at 18,” Cannavale said. “When I was 5, they got divorced. To this day I can’t see how they ever got together.”

He refers to himself as Italian American in this interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJo37SEoITU

He also just had a child with girlfriend Rose Byrne (http://ethnicelebs.com/rose-byrne). Their pages should be linked.

Looks so typically Lebanese. I could’ve sworn that he was one. He is kinda handsome btw. I can see why Rose Byrne is with him.

Typical Campanian last name, especially Neapolitan.
