Mantegna, an Italian American, was born in Chicago, Illinois, the son of Mary Ann (née Novelli), a shipping clerk, and Joseph Anthony Mantegna, Sr., who worked in insurance sales.[1] Mantegna attended Morton East High School in Cicero, Illinois (home of Al Capone) and received much inspiration for acting from this small town with lots of character. He graduated with a degree in acting from the Goodman School of Drama (the Theatre School at DePaul University) in 1969. While still a young man in Chicago, he played bass in a band called "The Apocryphals". His band played with another local group called "The Missing Links" which went on to form the band Chicago. Mantegna is still very close to the original members of Chicago and keeps in touch with his old band mates as well.
