Here’s the guy we think drives cabs in NYC

Shot this photo of John Capasso while doing a shoot in NYC recently. He was the cab driver for our production, we were doing a shot of a woman in a cab, and he was the driver. Having not seen a caucasian cabbie in New York in more than 30 years, I asked him how long he’d been driving, and I find out he’s not a cabbie — he’s a movie cabbie. In other words, an actor who specifically plays a cab driver in some well-known movies and TV shows.

Which figures. He’s the cab driver we all have in our heads, but that’s not because he’s the actual typical cabbie, it’s because… he’s who we see in our make-believe world on the screen.
