Aug. 10 (UPI) -- Everybody Loves Raymond and Parenthood alum Ray Romano told UPI that filmmaker Martin Scorsese had no idea who he was before Romano auditioned via videotape for the pilot of Scorsese's 2016 drama series Vinyl.
"I put myself on tape and then the feedback came back a day or two later from the casting director, 'He likes it and he's never heard of him.' So, my agent thought, 'Well, you mean, so, he's never seen the show (Everybody Loves Raymond.)' And the casting director clarified: 'No, no, no. He's never heard of him.'"
