Joe Pantoliano (born September 12, 1951) is an actor. His last name is very hard for most English speakers to pronounce, so he often just asks people to call him Joey Pants.

Pantoliano was born in Hoboken, New Jersey, USA to first generation Italian-American parents. He played the character Cypher in The Matrix, as well as Ralph Cifaretto in the HBO show The Sopranos, and also provided the voicework for the club owner Luigi Goterelli in the smash-hit videogame title, Grand Theft Auto III.

In 2003, Pantoliano won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Cifaretto on "The Sopranos".
