I realised it was because I hadn't put any murders in. People watch mob shows because they like to see murders and betrayals. So when I went to HBO, I completely rewrote it."

He works out of his Essany Scaffolding (until he is granted a severance settlement) or Little Italy, Manhattan social club, and was a significant figure in the New York mafia family previously commanded by Carmine Lupertazzi. Johnny served as Carmine's underboss for many years, managing political payoffs and bid-rigging for the organization. Following Carmine's death, he ascended to the position of boss. His wife Ginny was obese, and he felt enraged whenever somebody remarked on her weight.

In an interaction with The Guardian in 2021, he talked about how he got the role and said, "I'd only become an actor very recently. My agent submitted me for the role of Johnny Sack – and the rest is history."

Wife

In an interview with New Jersey Monthly in 2013, Curatola said, "When I was 39—I'm 59 now—my wife said to me, 'Michael Moriarty teaches acting in Manhattan. Why don't you go audit an acting class?'" However, he said that he was too busy with his business.

Fortunately, on the other hand, Maureen didn't let the thought go. Curatola recalled, "She pleaded, 'Do it for me. Just go for one time.'"

He added, "I relented and went to this gorgeous prewar apartment directly across from Carnegie Hall. I didn't think I got anything from the class, but for some strange reason, I returned that second week."
