Danny Nucci


Daniel Nucci (born September 15, 1968) is an American actor. He is best known for his supporting roles in blockbuster films, including his roles as Danny Rivetti in Crimson Tide (1995), Lieutenant Shepard in The Rock (1996), Deputy Monroe in Eraser (1996), and Fabrizio de Rossi in Titanic (1997), as well as his lead role as Mike Foster in the Freeform series The Fosters (2013–2018).


Born in Klagenfurt, Austria, to a French Moroccan mother and an Italian father, Nucci was raised in Italy until the age of seven, when his family relocated to the United States.

After temporarily living in Queens, New York, the family settled in the San Fernando Valley of California, where Nucci graduated from Grant High School. He married Terre Bridgham in 1995, and they had a daughter before their divorce in 1998. He played lovers with Paula Marshall in the 1997 film That Old Feeling; they married in 2003, and have a daughter.


During the 1990s, Nucci played characters who are unceremoniously killed off in three blockbuster films — Eraser, The Rock, and Titanic (as Fabrizio De Rossi, Jack Dawson's Italian friend) — which were released within 20 months of each other between 1996 and 1997. His character in Alive (also known as Alive: The Miracle of the Andes) (1993) survives.


Elsewhere in the film, he starred as Spider Bomboni in Book of Love (1990) and as Petty Officer Danny Rivetti in the Gene Hackman-Denzel Washington thriller Crimson Tide (1995). He played the roles of Benny Rodriguez in the straight-to-video film The Sandlot: Heading Home (2007) and a Port Authority police officer in World Trade Center (2006).
