David Stephen Caruso

Type :  


David Stephen Caruso is an American film and television actor and producer, best known for his role of Lieutenant Horatio Caine on the TV series CSI: Miami. The role that gained him initial significant recognition was the role of Detective John Kelly on the ABC crime drama NYPD Blue.


 early life
Caruso was born in Forest Hills Gardens, Queens, New York, the son of Joan, a librarian, and Charles Caruso, a magazine and newspaper editor. He is of Irish and Italian descent and was raised as a Roman Catholic. Caruso attended Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Catholic School, in Forest Hills. He later attended Archbishop Molloy High School in nearby Briarwood, graduating in 1974.

His first film appearance was in the 1980 film Getting Wasted as "Danny". Caruso then spent most of the next decade in film supporting roles, appearing in such films as First Blood, An Officer and a Gentleman, Blue City, Thief of Hearts and China Girl. Caruso also appeared in Twins and Hudson Hawk . Caruso credits his role as Daniels, "the cadet who nearly drowned", in An Officer and a Gentleman as what got him noticed. In television, he had a recurring role as Tommy Mann, the gang leader of "The Shamrocks", on Hill Street Blues in the early 1980s. He also had a two-episode appearance on the television series Crime Story which ran from 1986 to 1988 on NBC. In 1984, Caruso portrayed U.S. Olympian James Brendan Connolly in the NBC miniseries The First Olympics: Athens, 1896.

Caruso had supporting roles in the crime films King of New York and Mad Dog and Glory . While filming 1991's Hudson Hawk, Caruso employed method acting, refusing to talk to anyone on set because his character, Kit-Kat, was mute having had his tongue bitten off.

Caruso's first significant role was in 1993 as Detective John Kelly on the series NYPD Blue, for which Caruso won a Golden Globe Award. In addition, TV Guide named Caruso as one of the six new stars to watch in the 1993–94 season.

Caruso made news by leaving the highly rated show the following year after failing to obtain the raise he wanted. He was unable to establish himself as a leading-man in films despite starring in the crime thriller Kiss of Death, which was critically well-received but did not perform well financially. He also appeared in Jade , which flopped critically and at the box office. In a 2010 issue of TV Guide, Caruso's decision to leave NYPD Blue was ranked #6 on a list of TV's ten biggest "blunders". In the first episode of South Park, ("Cartman Gets an Anal Probe") Kyle tells his brother Ike to "do your impersonation of David Caruso's career" to get Ike to jump out of a spaceship.

In 1997, Caruso returned to television as a New York City-based federal prosecutor in the short-lived CBS law drama series, Michael Hayes, which aired for one season.

Caruso returned to film with a supporting role as Russell Crowe's mercenary associate in the film Proof of Life in 2000. In 2001, he had a lead role in the horror film Session 9.

Since 2002, he has starred as Lieutenant Horatio Caine in the popular CSI spin-off series CSI: Miami. He was the first actor in the franchise to appear as the same character on all three CSI programs. On CSI: Miami, Caruso is known for frequently using one-liners at the beginning of each episode. Many of these include him putting on his trademark sunglasses mid-sentence, then walking off-screen just as the main theme starts . On an episode of the Late Show with David Letterman that aired on March 8, 2007, comedian Jim Carrey professed to being a fan of the show and went on to satirically impersonate Caruso. Carrey asked for an "intense close-up" from the camera, spoke in a deep voice and put sunglasses on. Caruso later said in an interview with CBS that he was impressed with the impersonation.

 personal life
Caruso has a daughter, Greta , with his second wife, Rachel Ticotin. In 1994, ex-girlfriend Paris Papiro filed a palimony suit. Caruso paid an undisclosed sum in early 1995. He and former girlfriend Liza Marquez have two children together: a son, Marquez Anthony , and daughter, Paloma Raquel . In April 2009, Marquez filed papers suing Caruso for fraud, breach of their settlement agreement and emotional distress. He currently lives in Los Angeles and Miami with his girlfriend, Amina Islam.

In March 2009, an Austrian woman was placed in custody in Tyrol, Austria, on charges of stalking Caruso; she had twice failed to appear in court to answer the charges before fleeing to Mexico; following her deportation from Mexico, Austrian officials took her into custody to await trial on the stalking charges.
