Singer/Actor Frankie Valli!

March 9th, 2008

With Jersey Boys officially opening on March 18 in London, the UK press is filling everyone in on the Tony Award-winning megahit, in addition to Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. In the Sunday Sun, Caroline Smith provides some interesting facts on Frankie Valli’s chart-topping career.

Along with singing, Frankie also acted, appearing in the films “Dirty Laundry,” “Eternity,” “Modern Love,” and “Opposite Corners.”
And he took on the role of mobster Rusty Millio in the hit TV gangster series “The Sopranos.”

He has also been name checked in the show. Its lead character Tony Soprano boasted that he and Frankie Valli used the same florist, while the mother of a Sopranos character died after a night out to Jersey Boys.
