John Costelloe Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Dec 16, 2008

With his dark hair and thick-set features that inevitably suggested an urban background, character actor John Costelloe came to specialize almost exclusively in portrayals of ethnic, inner-city types in big screen features and on television -- a trend that lent him particularly strongly to the crime and action genres, and the urban drama subgenre. Features in which Costelloe costarred over the years included the [[Performer~P110579~Ridley Scott~ridleyscott]]-directed crime saga [[Feature~V133366~Black Rain~blackrain]] (1989), the gritty Dutch Schultz biopic [[Feature~V5625~Billy Bathgate~billybathgate]] (1991), and [[Performer~P110382~Barbet Schroeder~barbetschroeder]]'s noir remake [[Feature~V134831~Kiss of Death~kissofdeath]] (1995). In 2008, Costelloe landed a small role opposite [[Performer~P68676~Meryl Streep~merylstreep]] and [[Performer~P32716~Philip Seymour Hoffman~philipseymourhoffman]] in director [[Performer~P110969~John Patrick Shanley~johnpatrickshanley]]'s sexual abuse drama [[Feature~V396068~Doubt~doubt]]. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
