Then I would scream at these so-called Hollywood know-it-all's for letting this phenomenal talent slip away without giving him another opportunity to top that performance. The sad part is that Nick Mancuso has not disappeared. In fact, he's been a working actor for almost forty years.
He's had many leading parts, like in Heartbreakers and Blame It on the Night and even the title role in the television series Stingray, but those characters never gave him the depth and range that Ticket to Heaven proved he could handle.
With age his roles have gotten smaller and his movies less mainstream. And all I can say is shame on you Hollywood. You let a great actor get away. But then again, you've been doing that for years.
