Actor/musician Sebastian Sozzi was a minor if consistent presence in features and on television in the early 2000s before working his way up to series regular roles on "My Generation" (ABC, 2010) and "Blue Bloods" (CBS, 2010- ). Sozzi began his career by playing streetwise teenagers, occasionally with an air of menace, in "In The Cut" (2003) and "Half Nelson" (2006) before graduating to more mature characters in "Choke" (2008) and "My Generation." He briefly courted a music career in 2010 before returning to acting with showcase roles on "House M.D." (Fox, 2004-2012) and "Blue Bloods." Though still largely unknown to most audiences, Sebastian Sozzi's steadily escalating career seemed to indicate that his star opportunity was only a project away.
Sozzi began appearing on screen in the early 2000s, landing minor roles in the features "Revolution #9" (2001) and Jane Campion's thriller "In the Cut," as well as regular work as inner city characters on "Law & Order" (NBC, 1990-2010). By the midpoint of the decade, he had graduated to supporting roles in the indie drama "Half Nelson" and Clark Gregg's adaptation of author Chuck Palahniuk's novel "Choke." Two years later, he was cast as "The Falcon," a musician turned producer, on the short-lived ABC drama "My Generation." During this period, Sozzi also wrote and performed on the house/dance music track "Mind Blowin," with the group Filsonik. Sozzi worked regularly in the years that followed, playing an inmate on "House M.D." (Fox, 2004-2012), and the recurring role of brash police officer Vinny Cruz on the hit police series "Blue Bloods" in 2012 and 2013.
