Eric Mangini’s IMDB profile


Jets coach Eric Mangini cameoed on the penultimate episode of “The Sopranos” last night, even earning the moniker “Mangenius” from Tony, which qualifies as clever wordplay in New Jersey.

What you may not know is that this was NOT Mangini’s first TV or film role. In fact, the man boasts an acting resume that would make JT Walsh stand up in his grave. The man has an almost Serkisian ability to inhibit the skin of the characters he plays. The man is blessed with natural acting ability. But he also extensively studies tape of his subjects and other actors from the past. He gets their tendencies down pat, then adjusts his bra size accordingly. Here now, for the first time ever, and with research provided by all six KSK staff members, is Mangini’s impressive imdb resume.

As opposed to cheese crumbs rolling around their seventh and eighth chins, which qualifies as clever wordplay in Minnesota. Fucker.

Monty Python’s Meaning Of Life (1983) …. Wafer Thin Mint Eater--

That would be Mr. Creosote.

And as for Orson Welles, an even better option is Hank Quinlan in Touch of Evil.

So you wanted to follow up the last post about boobs with another post about boobs. I am coo with that but did they have to be Mangini's boobs. You could have at least done something on Boobie Gibson

no need for that burnsy, you called titanic fair and square.

Come on, that was hilarious. I loved hearing him talk about "my people." Which people? The NRA?

I bet Eric Mangini can drink more than Otto.

Zing! I bet he can drink more than Brooklyn.

Se7en (1995) …. Sloth Victim

Actually, I think you're thinking Gluttony Victim here. That was the lardass he made eat all the pasta. Sloth was the heroin addict who wasted away to nothingness. Mangini might have played the queen-sized bed in that scene, but nothing else.

Otto Man said...

Oh, I forgot:

"Seinfeld" (1996) -- Manzierre/Bro model

Regarding Se7en I would have put my money on the Vanity Vic, just me.

J.L. White said...

What about Mangina's many TV cameos he has made? Hell, I can list three of them right off the top of my head:

1.) The Office: Fat guy who wouldn't stand on top of the table, then quit.

2.) The Simpsons: Comic Book Guy

3.) House: House's house.

(PS: It was Chris Farley who had the "Nose Bitten Off by a Saigon Whore" role. Mangina was merely his stunt double.)

It was Artie that called him Mangenius, complete with another one of those Neapolitan gesticulations he's required to use with every one of his lines. His response to hearing Meadow's interest in constitutional law was like a cross between signing an airborne cheque and playing the flute.

Wormfather said...

@Bever, then you might want to ignore the rest of the thread.

Yeah, but as bad as Sil was, it was made up for by that biker dude getting run over.

John S. said...

I hope Tony goes out a la Scarface with the AR-15 and winds up face down in a pool of blood.

But, we all know he will turn state's evidence because of the little scene with the FBI guy at Satriale's (notice he threw away the sandwich? He went in there on purpose)

Oh, This is for the Rapture said...

Man I want a series spinoff that revolves around the italian assassins.

@John S... You'd lose your appetite if someone told you that there was a target on your back.

Wormfather said...

@Rapture

+1

Him turning states just doesnt make sense. It'd be more likely that he gets out of this jam but Carmela and the kids have decided to get the heck out of dodge and not come back.

John S. said...

@rapture - I would be inclined to believe your explanation if it were not for the fact that, in the very next scene at Bada Bing, he picks up something to eat.

Wormfather said...

@John s.

But it's not like they showed Tony outside and then him going in. He got the sandwich and then saw the dude.

Furthermore, he told him off and then walked away, he only came back to him once he was outside. And if he was gonna turn state's he woudl have done so IMMEDIATLY after sil and bobby were taken down.

Besides, he's to loyal to do that, like how after everything he was still willing to donate to Uncle Jr.'s hospital fund.

I have a theory that Artie is actually hearing impaired. Or possibly brain damaged.

Otto Man said...

I think we've already had one about the foreign incompetents. Perfect Strangers with Cousin Balki, a cold-blooded killer who pretends to be the idiot Dee-Hech-EL deliveryman.

I couldn't believe they didn't bring back Furio for that job. For a dude with a ponytail and a W.C. Fields-szed schnozz, that mofo was a cold-blooded killing machine.

John S. said...

I am not suggesting that he was going to turn State's evidence at that moment in the pork store. I am only stating that it may be rolling around in Tony's mind that he might need this guy at some time in the future... you know... "face time".

However, now, when the fit is going to hit the shan, he will call on him and run for cover.

Think about it, they have been playing up his relationship with the FBI guy too much this season for no other reason. Seriously, there is no reason for the FBI guy to take up valuable screen time OTHER than setting up a foundation for his character's relationship with Tony so that when Tony turns to him in his time of need we don't all go "What the hell? Where did this come from?" You know... avoiding the author's faux pas of indroducing a last minute character in a murder mystery and making it so that he is the killer.

John S. said...

@Wormfather...

He did not donate to Junior's hospital fund. He reached into his pocket and took out a five dollar bill. It was a "F-U" to Junior.

Jackin'4Beats said...

My money's also on Tony going out Tony Montana style whackin' like 10-15 wise guys with that AR-15 before he gets smoked.

Hopefully Phil Leo-Retardo gets shot in the face for the bitch move of putting out a contract on T then hiding like a coward.

They did kinda leave it open for Sil to recover although the doctors didn't think it was likely.

Landru said...

They did kinda leave it open for Sil to recover although the doctors didn't think it was likely.

I kinda took that as a message to loyal viewers to say "buh-bye" to Sil.

It's my fault anyway; like BDD, I was hoping for the death of everyone BUT Sil.

I like the Furio idea. Except it'd be better if he comes back to kill Tony, then gives Carmen the shagging of her life, followed by another shagging by Father Phil, followed by her being spontaneously combusted by an angry Catholic God. And I don't want to see any of that sex, either. I just wanna see the hot Meadow-on-Meadow action that Drew suggested, before she gets named Attorney General and then assassinated by...I dunno...the fat Goth son of Vito the Poofter?

movie: fat man and little boy,

too easy?

borats producer?

Jordi said...

Wait, what was he doing from 58 to 83? That's a long time to be unemployed. Where did a quarter century of Mangini masterpieces go? Or was he doing Broadway?

Black n Gold said...

Not to take away from the genius that is a good fat joke...but it's the Civic Arena in Pittsburgh (now the Mellon Arena).

But who cares because hockey isn't a sport anymore anyways--not when it gets kicked off NBC for Preakness pre-race.

That reminds me...
Seabiscuit (2003) ... Seabiscuit

Jordi said...

By the way, don't forget The Goonies -- "Chunk".

Hey if one of the Wayans brothers can play a baby, Mangini can play a kid.

Otto Man said...

Wait, what was he doing from 58 to 83? That's a long time to be unemployed. Where did a quarter century of Mangini masterpieces go?

I believe during that era he was an understudy for the planet Jupiter.

@otto man.

that just made me almost drop my laptop.

wow

Slash said...

Star Wars - The Death Star

He does have some major moobs going on there. You would think that once a dude starts growing breasts, that'd be the impetus to do some calorie counting. Guess not.

I think Tony's gonna drop dead of a stroke or heart attack. Alone on his living floor, reaching for a fallen french fry, or something like that.

Wormfather said...

@Otto Dude, you own the KSK commenting section!

BTW, Meadow might have a burst of moral consciencness and realize that as long as her dad was alive/around that the family would never be safe and that he is the reason behind her little brother's suffering, if that happens, then Meadow might take it upon her self to do the deed.

Pepe said...

The Never Ending Story - pink fluffy dinosaur (Atreu?). Anyway - I forget his name, but I am sure Mangini played it.

@Otto Dude, you own the KSK commenting section!

Thanks. Just trying to keep pace with the brilliance surrounding me.

I concur that Mangini is the spitting image of the giant Stay Pufft from Ghostbusters.

Anthony said...

Oh wait, I get it!

You guys think he's fat.

How witty.

Wormfather said...

@Anthony. How dare you! That is insulting and insensitive. We think that he's talented and has portrayed a lot of love handels, er, rolls through out the years.

Mr Furious said...

Roadhouse -- The fat-ass bouncer.

BTW, I looked up "Roadhouse" to find out that guy's name to no avail, but the first keyword for the movie at imdb is "homoeroticism." Classic.
