Fulvio Cecere (born March 11, 1960) is a Canadian actor and filmmaker.

Early life[edit]

Born to Italian parents in Canada, he moved to Hawthorne, New Jersey as a teenager and attended Hawthorne High School, graduating as part of the class of 1978.[1] Cecere attended Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles, but after one year he realized that acting, not law, was his true calling. He took acting classes at UCLA and starred in a wide array of television and feature film parts over the next few years. While vacationing in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, he sent out his resume to several local talent agents.

Career[edit]

Cecere works in a variety of places, moving around between Vancouver, Toronto, Los Angeles and New York City throughput the year.

He played the part of freelance detective Fred Durkin in the A&E Network's original film The Golden Spiders: A Nero Wolfe Mystery (2000) and the series A Nero Wolfe Mystery (2001–2002). He also starred as Det. Leon Vaughn in the 2001 slasher film Valentine. He also portrayed Lt. Thorne in Battlestar Galactica, Agent Sandoval in Dark Angel (2000–2002), and had recurring roles in TV series including Tarzan, Tilt, Blade and Intelligence. His work in feature films includes roles in Paycheck, Assault on Precinct 13, Cinderella Man, The Tortured and Watchmen.

Cecere wrote, produced, directed and acted in his own short film, The Regular Guy. Though it took him some time to get the film finished, he toured the film festival circuit with it and received several awards.

Cecere's 2018 documentary film 350 Days includes interviews with 70 current and former professional wrestlers. The film, whose title references the number of days many wrestlers spend working each year, took five years to complete and resulted from an interest in wrestling that arose out of Cecere's work on Cinderella Man.[2]
