Ever since he was yo(!) big, people have been telling Johnny DeCarlo he’s gonna be a star someday. And who are we to doubt them? He’s been published in books and magazines and done some acting in independent films. Don’t tell him we know, but he also was an extra in an episode of “The Sopranos.” Johnny’s a bright guy, funny — definitely his own man. So we made him an offer he couldn’t refuse.
And he refused it.
Actually, he embraced the idea of sharing his dream of one day hitting the big time, his immense knowledge of all things goombah, and his authentic Italian cooking style.
Look for a new “HERE’S JOHNNY” column every Wednesday on CLIFFVIEWPILOT.COM. Try not to like him; we dare ya. Because you can’t. Just somethin’ about this Jersey Boy from Wood-Ridge makes you root for him.
Tell your family. Tell you friends. Tell everyone you know.
Otherwise, we’re gonna have to come down there.
We expect a great future for our new paisan. In the meantime, we’re glad he’s with us. Click heeeeeeeeere for Johnny!
