Robert M. "Bobby" Cannavale (born May 3, 1970) is an American actor known for his leading role as Bobby Caffey in the first two seasons of the television series Third Watch. He also had a recurring role on the comedy series Will & Grace as Officer Vince D'Angelo, Will's long-term boyfriend. Bobby Cannavale was born in Brooklyn to an Italian father and a Cuban mother, and grew up in Union City. He was raised Catholic and attended St. Michael's Catholic School, where he participated in a number of extracurricular activities, including being an altar boy and member of the chorus. When he was eight, Cannavale secured the plum role of the lisping boy, Winthrop, in his school's production of The Music Man, and later as a gangster in Guys and Dolls, which cemented his love for performing. Cannavale's parents divorced when he was 13 and his mother moved the family to Puerto Rico. After two years in Latin America, they returned to the United States and settled in Coconut Creek, Florida. Cannavale returned to New Jersey after graduating high school in the late 1980s, in order to be closer to New York in order to begin his acting career.
