Iacono was one of those kids for whom it was showbiz or bust. “When I was younger, my shtick was I would impersonate random celebrities,” says the young actor. “Sinatra and Ethel Merman were two of my earliest.”
Iacono’s come a long way from singing “There’s No Business Like Show Business” for his parents; after a short run as the star of MTV’s The Hard Times of RJ Berger, he’s graduated to the big screen. He’s shot four films in the past year, including the teen comedy G.B.F., and is optimistic about their — and his own — prospects.
“I’ve planted a lot of seeds,” says Iacono. “I have a feeling 2014 will bring to fruition many of them.”
