Best known for playing the unconventional hero and fan favorite “Edgar Stiles” in Fox’s Emmy Award winning show “24” and FBI Agent “Skip Lipari” in the highly acclaimed HBO’s “The Sopranos,” Louis Lombardi is going back to his Italian roots and is launching his own gourmet Italian food line, “Lombardi’s,” consisting of pastas, sauces, olive oils and olives imported directly from Italy! In addition to the launch of Lombardi’s, Louie continues to steal the screen this Fall in RUNNER RUNNER, alongside Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake as “Archie” the owner of the Sports Book and also joins the cast of TNT’s Frank Darabont Drama “Lost Angels” this fall with Milo Ventimiglia and Ed Burns as “Stucky” one of Mickey’s (Jeremy Luke) men.
Born and raised in the Bronx, Lombardi’s acting career took off after starring in the Sundance Film Festival’s Grand Jury Prize Nominee “Amongst Friends” directed by Rob Weiss which caught the attention of Academy Award winning director Oliver Stone who cast Lombardi in his next film NATURAL BORN KILLERS alongside Woody Harrelson, Robert Downey Jr, Tommy Lee Jones and Juliette Lewis. Other notable big screen films include Academy Award winner THE USUAL SUSPECTS alongside Benicio Del Toro, Kevin Spacey and Gabriel Byrne, cult classic SUICIDE KINGS with Denis Leary, Christopher Walken and Brad Garrett, and THE ANIMAL as Rob Schneider’s best friend. Louis’ love of food also inspired DOUGHBOYS, a film festival favorite starring Lombardi, Vincent Pastore, Andrew Keegan and Mike Starr about two Bronx brothers running the family bakery which was also and written and directed by Lombardi.
It's good to talk.
