    Milling About with Jonny Orsini

    in Entertainment

    Jonny Orsini (Broadway's The Nance, MacBeth) makes his Off-Broadway leading debut in Almost Home playing a marine who returns home to uncertainties and challenges after his tour of duty. Jonny tells host Robin Milling he went the distance for the role taking on the physique of a marine with lots of pull-ups and push-ups consulted by former marines, co-star Joe Lisi playing his father and playwrite Walter Anderson who based the play on his own experiences in Vietnam. He also had to be mindful of his vegan diet so he reveals the 'eggs' he eats on stage every performance prepared by his mother, played by Karen Ziemba (Bullets Over Broadway), are really tofu scramble made to look like the real thing. Jonny has an affinity for men in service, playing a marine before in the film Cigarette Candy. He says he deeply admires their sacrifice and contribution and is honored to bring their stories to light.

    Born in the small town of Cheshire, Connecticut Jonny gave up the saxophone to pursue sports and that fell by the wayside when acting became his passion at college in Boston. Music will always be a part of his artistic expression. He recalls the night when Ethan Hawke picked up the guitar in MacBeth to appease the audience after a technical glitch canceled the show.

    Next Jonny is looking forward to starring with Larry David in A Fish In The Dark starting rehearsals in December.
