Danny Aiello, italiano y con principios


Danny Aiello es otro de esos inmensos actores secundarios que ha dejado su impronta en muchas de las mejores películas de las últimas décadas: El Padrino 2, Érase una vez en América, La Rosa Púrpura del Cairo, León, etc. Un tanto encasillado por su origen italiano en papeles de tipo duro, también ha sabido explotar su vis cómica en obras como Two Much o El Gran Halcón. Aiello pertenece a una familia que tradicionalmente ha simpatizado con el partido demócrata. Sin embargo, la política de Clinton le hizo desencantarse con la izquierda y convertirse al partido republicano, ya que según afirma, él es un tradicionalista.

During Bill Clinton's presidency, life-long Democrat Aiello became a Republican out of disgust for the behavior of the Commander-in-Chief. "I turned in my card to become a Republican because I did not want to be known as a Democrat under that person's regime. I'm a traditionalist. I have certain values that I live by, and he practices none of those things".

We talk about Hollywood being pro-labor, yet about 70 percent of our industry has been farmed out to Canada. We are losing jobs like crazy. Where's organized labor asking how we can allow such a thing to happen? Danny Aiello

Aiello was a
Democrat until the Lewinsky sex scandal in 1998, when he switched his support to the Republican Party.
