The Bold and the Beautiful’s Vinny Walker may have died in a horrifying way that sent shockwaves through the community, but luckily things are much better for his portrayer, Joe LoCicero, who is celebrating a major milestone.
Happy Birthday, Joe LoCicero!
And that’s because he was born on August 9, 1986, in Long Island, New York, which means that this fan favorite is turning 36 years old today! He was, at one time, a professional soccer player. LoCicero eventually decided to venture into the entertainment industry.
He worked as a model before focusing his efforts on becoming an actor. He made his professional debut in the 2013 short film Hector: Lost Souls with Switchblades (Goon 1). Subsequently, he appeared in the TV series A Crime to Remember (Sheriff’s Deputy) and Kingdom (MMA Fighter), as well as two further short features entitled Karaoke: The Movie (Fitz) and Crossword Puzzle Brahs (Chad).
In 2016, Joe LoCicero landed a starring role in the action-crime comedy Spaghetti Man – a parody of the superhero genre. He also worked as a stunt choreographer during the production of the film.
During that same year, Joe LoCicero appeared in the film Welcome to Willits (Donnie), voiced the character of Luca Vincezo Cocciola from the video game Battlefield 1, and played Zack in the short film The Perfect Pitch.
His other acting credits include the films Cop Chronicles: Loose Cannons: The Legend of the Haj-Mirage (which he co-authored) Miss Bala, and Someone Great. He played Vincent Walker on The Bold and the Beautiful from June 2019 until 2021.
LoCicero has been married to Gina Rodriguez, whom he worked opposite on Jane the Virgin since May 4, 2019. Aside from his acting endeavors, he is also an MMA fighter with a number of amateur titles to his name.
