Will Sasso first became interested in comedy as a child, owing to his obsession with television. He was influenced by actors, comedians, and singers, and he decided to pursue acting as a career.
At the age of fifteen, Sasso had already won his first agency and had begun acting in several projects. The actor was cast as Derek Wakaluk in Madison (1993-1997) 1993, which helped him acquire further industry recognition.
He is currently a well-known actor, comedian, and voice actor who has appeared in films including The Three Stooges (2012) and FOX’s hit sketch comedy series MADtv (1995).
Kenny Rogers’ Death was mourned by Sasso
MADtv, in which he impersonated Tony Soprano, Dennis Franz, and Kenny Rogers, was one of Sasso’s earlier efforts that helped him acquire fame. When Rogers died in March of 2020, Sasso expressed his condolences and expressed his affection for the artist.
Roger’s death was also mourned by Lionel Richie and Dolly Parton, with the latter even creating an emotional video for her old duet partner.
Will Sasso was influenced by Jane Curtin.
Throughout his long career, Sasso has appeared in over a hundred films. The Three Stooges actor will star alongside Jane Curtin in ABC’s sitcom United We Fall in 2020. The show revolves around Sasso and Christina Vidal, who are parents to two girls, and the events that occur after Curtin’s character (who plays Sasso’s mother) moves in with them.
Curtin impacted Sasso comedically, he says in an interview with On The Red Carpet.
She’s influenced my and everyone else’s comedic careers to the point where it’s like, “Look at those guys, they’re like the Beatles.” You don’t realize how much they impact you until you realize how much she influences you.
