Life & CareerEdit

Nearly unrecognizable in his portrayals, Michael Aronov has made a name for himself by pushing the boundaries on stage and screen. Residing in New York, the actor continues to balance his way through theatre and film. He recently completed work as one of the leads opposite Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini in the upcoming Dennis Lehane film, The Drop (2014). On television, the actor has a recurring role in the acclaimed series The Americans (2013), giving a heartbreaking performance as a physicist and potential spy. His work as avenging father and Italian royalty, Count Vincent of Naples, will also be seen in this season's newly anticipated show Reign (2013). Previous television work had Aronov taking on the gritty undercover world in the Bronx as Danny Raden - a series lead opposite Larenz Tate in BET's Gun Hill (2011). Michael then went on to parallel Jim Caviezel's character in Person of Interest (2011), donning the role of another undercover cop searching for symmetry between family and the streets. And in 2010 his intense performance as concealed war criminal Armand Marku pitted Aronov head-to-head with Kyra Sedgwick in a gripping season finale of The Closer (2005)

In 2013 he collaborated for the third time with director Matthew Bonifacio on another award-winning piece called Fortune House (2013), which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. In the story Michael delved into the world of autism as he portrayed Peter, a lone obsessive-compulsive, that comes upon companionship for the first time. In harsh contrast, a drastic red flattop and burly mustache accentuated Aronov's full transformation into a brick of a man in Amexicano (2007), which also premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. In his first film, he learned to rock the drums as "Schlatko" in the cult-classic Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001), and then gave a shockingly polar portrayal in another Sundance Film Festival favorite and 2011 Independent Spirit Award nominated film - Lbs. (2004). The latter film showcased Aronov's unique level of immersion into a role as he lost nearly fifty pounds to reflect the authentic downfall of Sacco Valenzia, a charismatic and boundless addict.

Michael has been honored nationally with a "Level 1 Award for Acting" by the NFAA in association with the ARTS; an "IRNE Award" nomination for Best Supporting Actor; "The Greer Garson Award" in Dallas, TX; and in culmination of his work he was the recipient of "The Individual Grant Award" by the Belle Foundation, "exhibiting exceptional talent and potential for achievement in the arts."
