Joseph Peter "Joe" Pantoliano (born September 12, 1951) is an American film and television actor. He played the character of Ralph Cifaretto on The Sopranos, Bob Keane in La Bamba, Cypher in The Matrix, Teddy in Memento, Francis Fratelli in The Goonies, Guido "the Killer Pimp" in Risky Business, and Jennifer Tilly's violent mobster boyfriend, Caesar, in Bound. He also played Deputy U.S. Marshal Renfro in both The Fugitive and U.S. Marshals. He is often referred to as "Joey Pants", because of the difficulty some people have pronouncing his Italian surname.
