James Di Giacomo is a multi-award winning actor-writer-producer-director born Giacomo Capizzi in the Bronx, NY shortly after his parents migrated here from Sicily and grew up in NJ. James was often teased as a child for not only having a different name than everyone else, but also because English was his second language. As a boy, James often was too shy to speak to strangers and mainly observed people -- how they ate, walked, spoke and interacted with others. As a teenager, James noticed he had a knack for making people laugh -- not only by impersonating others, but also with his obscure facial expressions, wacky voices and sounds effects he would make. This is how James began to blossom and gain confidence in his teen years. James very much enjoyed making people laugh then, and even more so now as an adult. James says, "Laughter never gets old -- as a matter of fact, it's almost always contagious."
James loves to collaborate with other likeminded talented people. If you want to work with James in some capacity, feel free to reach out.
Unique traits: I speak Italian. A huge fan of Charlie Chaplin and have been lucky enough to get cast based on the fact that I can relay what I am feeling with my eyes -- no words.
Film by Barry Shurchin (Drama) Producer "Immigrant" is the coming of age story of Daanyik, a nine year-old Russian boy, whose family immigrates to the United States in the late nineteen-seventies to pursue the American Dream. Daanyik's childhood of pencil drawings and toy soldier battles in Moscow is interrupted overnight as he is hurled into the harsh reality of adulthood in New York City. Upon losing his father Deema, Daanyik and his mother, Meela, are left poor, alone and helpless in a foreign land. Out of desperation for survival, Meela begins a relationship with Tolik, an abusive man that may have had a hand in Deema's death. Daanyik finds himself trapped in a precarious web of torment brought on by his new stepfather, a lecherous Rabbi and a neighborhood bully. Drawing becomes his only source of comfort and catharsis. As his battles grow fiercer, Daanyik, at the tender age of nine, is left to overcome insurmountable odds to save himself and his mother from complete destruction. Written by Anonymous
