Bio

Mo Gallini (often credited as Matt Gallini) is an American actor best known for his role as Enrique in the 2003 action film 2 Fast 2 Furious, directed by John Singleton.

He also has a recurring role in the procedural firefighting drama series Chicago Fire.

Mo was born in Miami, Florida. Growing up multi-ethnic was a plus, giving him the opportunity to learn of life outside the United States at a young age. His father was from Lebanon and his mother is a New Yorker of Cuban descent.

After meeting director David Anspaugh, who extended him the opportunity to work on his football themed feature film Rudy, he was hooked.

Since then Gallini has worked opposite the likes of Denzel Washington and Gene Hackman in Crimson Tide; James Caan in director Bob Rafelson's HBO original Poodle Springs; James Garner, who he watched as a boy, in Rockford Files; the legendary Rod Steiger; Gabriel Byrne; and the once in a lifetime experience of fighting Arnold Schwarzenegger in End Of Days.

He also worked with David Lynch on the ABC pilot which became Mulholland Drive and received accolades for his award-winning role in the Pander Brothers film Selfless.

On television Mo has had recurring roles on 24, Chase, General Hospital and The Young & the Restless. His numerous guest star assignments include CSI: NY, Weeds, NCIS, Shark, The District, JAG, The X-Files, Brooklyn South and Seinfeld.

He has also appeared in multiple episodes of NYPD Blue, V.I.P. and Melrose Place.
