Born in Canada to Italian parents. Cecere attended Southwestern University School of Law in Los Angeles, but only after one year he realized that not law but acting was his true calling. He took acting classes at UCLA and starred in an impressive amount of television and feature film parts over the next years.
While on vacation in Vancouver, Canada, Cecere sent out his resume to several local talent agents and to his surprise the response was overwhelming. Moving around between Vancouver, Toronto, Los Angeles and New York all year, he works in a variety of places. Cecere has had recurring parts in Nero Wolfe, Dark Angel, Tarzan, Tilt, Blade and Intelligence. Next to that he had parts in films like Paycheck, Assault on the Precinct 13 and Ron Howard's Cinderella Man.
A few years back Cecere produced, directed and acted in his own written short film The Regular Guy. Though it took him some time to get finished, he recently toured the Film Festivals with it and received several awards. Cecere currently works on a new self written film project.
