Award winning actor Tony Denison joined the cast of The Closer starring Kyra Sedgwick, as Det. Andy Flynn in 2005, which quickly became TNT’s # 1 Drama.
He has received a Prism Award by the Entertainment Industry Council for Outstanding Performance in a Drama Series and five SAG nominations for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.
His starring role as a San Francisco Chef, in the soon to be released feature-film Trattoria, co-stars Gossip Girl’s John Amedori and also features celebrity chefs Elizabeth Falkner (The Next Iron Chef) and Traci Des Jardins (Top Chef Masters). He is a culinary aficionado that makes a delicious French Toast Italia Style with Ricotta Cheese and a mean Eggplant Parmesan.

He received a fistful of kudos, including TIME Magazine’s recognition as “Televisions Best Villain of the Decade,” and applause for his portrayal of the infamous John Gotti.
Denison has appeared in more than two-dozen motion pictures, with Columbia Tri Star’s Art of Revenge and Joel Bender’s Independent feature Deadly, Little Vegas.
