Everybody knows… said like Phaedra Parks… that John Turturro is on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, playing HagfaceLizardLipLickin’ Kyle Richards’ husband.
We feel simply terrible that THE John Turturro had take a part in a “reality” show…. a role that is waaaay beneath him! But, hey… John Turturro is a master craftsman and takes his career very seriously, which is the ONLY reason John Turturro accepted the role.
Who else but an extremely talented actor could possibly bear the thought of co-mingling with the likes of the RHOBH… especially as Kyle’s husband!?
When asked about his role on the RHOBH, John Turturro explained **exclusively** to SH that his role on the RHOBH is the “hardest part I’ve ever played in my LIFE!”
John Turturro mentioned that sometimes those “reality” shows aren’t really “real”and that trying to “act” real on a “reality” show is much harder than just being “real.”
John Turturro also said that Kyle constantly tells him how her being adopted has affected her life! Poor Kyle!
After our quick conversation with John Turturro… he is under that very strict Bravo contract and will be severely reprimanded (Bravo reprimand: MORE screen time with Kyle Richards) if his chat with SH is ever released… we wanted all SH readers to know the REAL John Turturro!
NOT the John Turturro who plays Kyle’s husband on the RHOBH!
We’ll start with some insightful thoughts from John Turturro!
Please keep in mind that these quotes attributed to the great actor, John Turtorro, were said while John Turturro was playing the role of Kyle’s husband… MO-reese!
John Turturro’s bio from Moviefone:
One of the top character actors of his era, John Turturro is a fixture of the contemporary American independent filmmaking landscape. Born February 28, 1957, in Brooklyn, NY, Turturro became fascinated by movies during childhood, and after graduating from college he won a scholarship to study at the prestigious Yale School of Drama.
He first gained notice in regional theater and off-Broadway, earning an Obie Award for his starring role in Danny and the Deep Blue Sea. He made his film debut in Martin Scorsese’s 1980 masterpiece Raging Bull but did not reappear onscreen prior to 1984′s The Exterminator 2.
That same year, he debuted on Broadway in Death of a Salesman. Small roles in diverse fare including Susan Seidelman’s 1985 comedy Desperately Seeking Susan, Scorsese’s 1986 drama The Color of Money, and Woody Allen’s masterful Hannah and Her Sisters kept Turturro busy throughout much of the decade, but his breakthrough performance did not arrive until Spike Lee cast him as a bigoted pizzeria worker in 1989′s Do the Right Thing.
A scene-stealing turn in the Coen brothers’ 1990 gangland drama Miller’s Crossing followed, and in 1991 the Coens cast him as the titular Barton Fink, a performance which garnered Best Actor honors at the Cannes Film Festival. Subsequent lead roles were infrequent, although in 1992 he wrote, directed, and starred in Mac, a little-seen indie feature that won him a Golden Camera award for Best First Feature at the 1992 Cannes Festival.
Supporting turns in acclaimed offerings including Quiz Show, Clockers, and Grace of My Heart (in which he expertly portrayed a Phil Spector-like music producer) followed before Turturro’s next starring role, in Tom DiCillo’s whimsical 1996 comedy Box of Moonlight. In 1998, the actor again collaborated with both Lee and the Coen brothers, working with the former on He Got Game and the latter on The Big Lebowski.
Also in 1998, Turturro wrote, directed, produced, and starred in Illuminata, a comedy set against the backdrop of a struggling, turn-of-the-century New York theater company. The following year, he again took on the New York theater, appearing in Tim Robbins’ Cradle Will Rock, an exploration of the relationship between art and politics set in 1930s New York.
In 2010, John Turturro wrote, directed, produced and starred in Passionone... which Variety described as…
John Turturro based his likeness and his “character” of Kyle’s husband, MO-reese… which he takes VERY seriously… on his role of “Jesus” in TheBigLebowski!
…sorry, just cannot help it!!…
John Turturro as “Jesus” in TheBigLebowski…
NOTE: We like John’s cousin, Aida Turturro, too! Aida has just been signed up as a new Housewife on the RHONY and will be playing Countless LuAnnie’s half-sister, who steals Jawkes away from LuAnnie… while having an affair with Reid! Think “Sopranos”!
John Turturro has a twitter account... so, please give him a follow!!! BUT… do not, under any circumstances mention the RHOBH or Kyle or MO-reese!!!
WHY? ’Cause we LOVE John Turturro!!!
