Burt Young is an American actor, painter, author, and boxer. He is known for playing Paulie Pennino in the Rocky film series, a role for which he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor (for 1976’s first film in the series).
Burt is of Italian descent. He was born Richard Morea, the son of parents named Josephine and Michael.
Burt’s maternal grandfather was named Giuseppe/Joseph Tarulli. Giuseppe was Italian, with roots in Toritto, Bari, Puglia.
Burt’s maternal grandmother was Margaret Domenica Mirra (the daughter of Giuseppe Rocco Mirra and Maria Concetta Morgese). Domenica was Italian, with roots in Toritto.
I think his real name is Richard Morea and that his parents were Michael Morea and Josephine Tarulli.
His birth surname also peaks in Apulia (Bari and Taranto), so I guess he is 100% Apulian. I swore he was Calabrian.
Looks like an Iraqi store owner.
One of the official double actors of Mr Bean is an Italian man (Arnaldo Mangini), so it might make sense.
So then a typical South Italian man looks “Iraqi”?
What exactly do you think South Italians look like?
There is nothing unusual about Burt Young at all and he looks stereotypical South Italian to any sane and non blind person.
He basically plays an Italian American role in 99% of his movies.
What the hell is wrong with this site?
These comments are some of the most idiotic and insane of any site I have ever been on…
they basically usually use to whitewash Middle Eastern/Levantine people.
I doubt there are little to no Iraqi people with that skintone, to begin with: http://www.dreams.metroeve.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Iraqi-People-dreams-meaning-1024×684.jpg
