The 59-year-old Italian-American New York native has over 100 acting credits in his past 35-year career, most notably his Academy Award-nominated character as the villain of The Lovely Bones, as the creator of a hero in Captain America: The First Avenger, and maybe his striking role to date, Caesar Flickerman in The Hunger Games show.
