Vincent D’Onofrio Happy Birthday June 30

A big birthday is coming up for Law & Order Criminal Intent favorite Vincent D’Onofrio. On June 30, he’ll turn 49…and will probably want to stay there.

He was born on June 30, 1959, in Brooklyn, NY, the son of Gennaro and Phyllis D’Onofrio. According to Wikipedia, “His family moved frequently during his youth, and he grew up in Hawaii, Florida, and Colorado. He graduated from Hialeah-Miami Lakes High School in Florida in 1977 and attended a Colorado university for about 18 months. He then dropped out of college to pursue acting. He was accepted for study with the American Stanislavsky Theatre in New York City.”

Besides his current stint on Criminal Intent, Vincent is an accomplished movie actor. For the Stanley Kubrick film “Full Metal Jacket,” Vincent gained 70 pounds to make his role seem even more realistic. He has also both produced and starred in several films: Five Minutes, Mr. Welles (2005), Steal This Movie (2000), The Velocity of Gary (1998), Guy (1997), and The Whole Wide World (1996)

Have a great birthday, Vincent! Here’s a little birthday video so all Vincent’s fans can celebrate with you.

I went to VDO's high school in Hialeah. He graduated in 1977, I graduated in 1978. Most of my friends remember him. Of course, I have no recollection, since most of the 70's remain a bit of a blur. It's nice to see that a fellow graduate did so well.

Thanks for the post!!
