A heavy set, bald character player who often sports a distinctive, pencil-thin mustache and is frequently cast as gangsters or cops, Polito appeared on Broadway in "American Buffalo" (1977), "Curse of the Aching Heart" (1982) and the 1984 revival of "Death of a Salesman" (which was broadcast on CBS in 1985) and starred in the original Hartford Stage Company production of "Other People's Money". He made his film debut in The Clairvoyant (1982) and played Tommy Lucchese in the TV series "The Gangster Chronicles" (1981). Polito is best known for his roles in the films by the Coen Brothers: as obsequious yet vicious crime lord Johnny Caspar in Miller's Crossing (1990) as the toadying Lou Breeze in _Barton Fink (1991)_ and as the pansy dry cleaning investor Creighton Tolliver in The Man Who Wasn't There (2001).
