MR. 3000

PAUL SORVINO (Gus Panas) might best be described as a modern day ‘Renaissance Man.' In addition to his distinguished acting and directing career on the Broadway stage, film and television, Mr. Sorvino is also a renown opera singer, i n t e r n a t i o n a l l y acclaimed painter and sculptor, and the proud father of Academy Award® winner Mira Sorvino.

Born in Brooklyn, New York and trained at The American Music and Dramatic Academy as well as The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Sorvino's initial goal was to be an opera singer. Even throughout the course of his career as an actor, his love of song beckoned as he often returned to the Opera stage, including performances as Alfred in "Die Fledermaus” with the Seattle Opera Company and numerous appearances at the Metropolitan Opera House. Bouncing back to the boards in legit theatre, Sorvino starred on Broadway in "That Championship Season” and "An American Millionaire.”

With a remarkable career in film, critics and fans alike note his portrayal of Mafia Don ‘Paul Cicero' in "GoodFellas” as one of the most vivid characters in the entire filmography of director Martin Scorsese.

Sorvino can be seen in the critically acclaimed comedy "The Cooler,” in the memorable role as a washed up, drug-addled Vegas lounge singer. He has appeared in more than 80 films including "The Day of the Dolphin,” "Dick Tracy,” "Nixon,” and "The Firm.” In addition to "Mr. 3000”, Sorvino can also be seen in the upcoming "Mr. Fix-It,” with David Boreanaz. Among his well known television credits are the critically acclaimed "Law & Order,” "That's Life!,” (which he also directed several episodes) and "Star Trek: The Next Generation.”

As a severe asthma sufferer, Sorvino has dedicated a great deal of his time and energy to fundraising and philanthropic efforts related towards finding a cure for asthma. He is the founder of the Sorvino Children's Asthma Foundation and regularly does operatic concerts on behalf of his organization. Sorvino is also the author of How to Become a Former Asthmatic, published by William Morrow.
