Academy Award Nominee Chazz Palminteri Guests On Harvey Brownstone Interviews

Harvey Brownstone conducts an in-depth Interview with Chazz Palminteri, Award Winning Actor, Writer, Producer & Director, Star of “A Bronx Tale”.

Chazz Palminteri is a mega-talented, multi-award winning and beloved actor, writer, producer and director who’s brought us a myriad of unforgettable performances.

The world first got to know his onscreen persona as the streetwise, hard-nosed, unflinching tough guy in his brilliant, classic, breakout film “A Bronx Tale”, based on his highly acclaimed one man show, which played on Broadway and has toured across the country.

Since then, he’s shown amazing versatility in dozens of great movies including “Hurly Burly”, “The Usual Suspects”, “Diabolique”, “Mulholland Falls”, “The Perez Family”, “One Eyed King”, “Poolhall Junkies”, “Running Scared”, “Once More With Feeling”, and of course, “Bullets Over Broadway” for which he was nominated for an Academy Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a Chicago Film Critics Association Award and an American Comedy Award for Best Supporting Actor – and he WON the Film Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Actor. On television, he’s appeared on many shows and TV movies including “Glory Years”, “Peter Gunn”, “Excellent Cadavers”, “Boss of Bosses”, and “Unorganized Crime”, which he also co-wrote, and which won 11 major film festival awards. And who can ever forget him as “Shorty” on “Modern Family”? In recent years he’s taken his fabulous one-man show “A Bronx Tale”, on tour across America, playing to sold out audiences and getting rave reviews. In 2021, the show was voted “Best Show of the Year” in Las Vegas. And of course, our guest even played “Sonny” on Broadway in “A Bronx Tale: The Musical”.

When he isn’t busy making movies, TV shows, and touring in his one-man show, he’s hosting a highly popular podcast, “The Chazz Palminteri Show”, interviewing A-list celebrities, sharing life lessons and insights from a life well lived.

Harvey Brownstone is a retired judge of the Ontario Court of Justice and was the first openly gay judge in Canada. He is also the bestselling author of “Tug of War: A Judge’s Verdict on Separation, Custody Battles and the Bitter Realities of Family Court” and hosted “Family Matters with Justice Harvey Brownstone,” a television talk show on matters involving the family justice system.

After a distinguished legal career, Harvey was appointed a judge at the age of 38 in 1995. He has presided in family and criminal courts. He has been a trailblazer in several ways. He was the first openly gay judge in Canada. He was the first sitting judge in the world to write a national best seller and to host a TV talk show.

Harvey has been a role model and icon in the LGBTQ community. When same-sex marriage was legalized in Canada in 2003, he was the only judge to make himself publicly available to officiate at weddings for lesbian and gay couples travelling to Toronto from all over the world to get married. In 2007, he officiated at the wedding of Edith Windsor and Thea Spyer, the American couple whose marriage triggered the 2013 United States Supreme Court decision overturning the definition of “spouse” in the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

In February 2021, Harvey launched his online talk show “Harvey Brownstone Interviews” on his own YouTube channel. He saw this as an interesting hobby. Within several months, the show attracted hundreds of thousands – and then eventually, millions – of viewers. Because of the overwhelming success of the show, Harvey decided to retire from the judiciary on December 31, 2021 after having presided as a full-time judge for 26 1/2 years. Free from the constraints imposed upon judges regarding the expression of opinions and the endorsement of private enterprise, Harvey now happily devotes his full-time attention to hosting “Harvey Brownstone Interviews” as a regular member of the public – albeit one with a rather illustrious and unique career history.
