Chick Vennera Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Mar 27, 1952
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

One of the last alumni of the late, lamented Pasadena Playhouse, actor Chick Vennera made his first off-Broadway appearance in Jockeys, for which he won the Theatre World Award. Nearly always cast in ethnic parts in films, Vennera's most notable movie assignment was director Robert Redford's [[Feature~V32652~The Milagro Beanfield War~themilagrobeanfieldwar]] (1988). He was cast as poverty-stricken Joe Mondragon, whose reluctance to sell his small patch of land to avaricious developers served as launching pad for the film's storyline. A few years earlier, Vennera was seen as Raoul the butler in the satirical TV sitcom [[Feature~V21268~Hail to the Chief~hail]]. A busy cartoon voice-over artist, Chick Vennera can be heard as the Joe Pesci -like Pesty Pigeon in the "Goodfeathers" segments on the daily TVer [[Feature~V174788~Animaniacs~animaniacs[animatedtvseries]]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
