Actor John D'Leo enjoyed supporting parts in "The Wrestler" (2008), "The Family" (2013) and "Unbroken" (2014), as well as a leading role in high school comedy "Murt Ramirez Wants to Kick My Ass" (2012). Born in Monmouth County, NJ, in 1995, D'Leo made his screen debut playing a young murder victim in "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit" (NBC, 1999-), and following a one-off appearance in soap opera "Guiding Light" (CBS, 1952-2009) shared the screen with Mickey Rourke as his young video-game playing buddy Adam in the Oscar-nominated drama "The Wrestler" (2008). D'Leo then guested on short-lived police procedurals "Life on Mars" (ABC, 2008-09) and "The Unusuals" (ABC, 2009), landed the role of Ethan Hawke's son Vinny in Antoine Fuqua's star-studded crime drama "Brooklyn's Finest" (2009) and appeared as Kevin in the much-maligned buddy comedy "Cop Out" (2010). After showing up in hipster dramedy "How to Make It in America" (HBO, 2010-11) and medical soap "Mercy" (NBC, 2009-2010), D'Leo played Vienna Sausage Boy in raunchy comedy "Dirty Movie" (2011) and Paul Rudd's bratty nephew Tanner in David Wain's "Wanderlust" (2012), and landed the leading role of Billy, the high school student who spends an entire day trying to avoid the bully he's helped to expel, in "Murt Ramirez Wants to Kick My Ass" (2012).

D'Leo then played prison warden Joe Caputo and Ralph Macchio's timid construction worker as teenagers in the award-winning "Orange Is the New Black" (Netflix, 2013-) and indie comedy "Lost Cat Corona" (2017) respectively before guesting on cop drama "Blue Bloods" (CBS, 2010-).
