By Sally Deeringjoey-pants-no-kiddingJoey Pants’ award-winning documentary No Kidding, Me Too! sheds light on mental illnessWhen the cameras rolled, actor Joe Pantoliano dug deep into his dark side to portray characters whose personal demons drove them to commit violent, unthinkable acts. Pantoliano’s shocking performance as psychotic gangster Ralph Cifaretto on The Sopranos still resonates like a horrific dream, and his tour-de-force portrayal earned him a well-deserved Emmy Award.

Jeffery Augustin, MD,
