‘Reno 911!’ Rookie Is A Professional Moustache Grower

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Reno 911! newbie Joe Lo Truglio has the hair-raising ability to grow any kind of facial hair that a role demands.

Lo Truglio – who plays new cop Franky Rizzo on the sixth season of Reno 911!, premiering April 1 on Comedy Central – claims to come from the “Facial Hair School Of Acting.”

For every role he does, he grows a different kind of facial hair, and his Reno 911! ’stache is his best work to date.

He explains, “The opportunity to grow a handlebar moustache doesn’t present itself often, so I was excited for this role.”

For months he’s been pruning a perfect cop moustache reminiscent of the ones deputies donned in the ’70s.

He says, “My character thinks he can be a good cop by watching 1970s cop movies. The moustache goes with that theory. It’s very ’70s cop – or Village People – I haven’t decided which one.”

Lo Truglio is also enjoying his uniform – especially since it doesn’t include short shorts like Lt. Jim Dangle’s – and because it comes with “ankle- high alligator skin boots” which he “treasures.”
