Often interviewees have life experiences that would be film worthy. Michael Franzese’s life is not just cinematic in theory… but in reality. He was portrayed by actor Joseph Bono in Martin Scorsese’s 1990 film Goodfellas and we chat the day after the news of Ray Liotta’s death — he played Henry Hill in the movie.
