Meet radioman – a homeless man who has been in over 100 movies regardless of being homeless the entire time.

In the world of Hollywood, fame and fortune are often synonymous. But for one man, being homeless didn’t stop him from becoming a star in over 100 movies. Meet Radioman, the beloved homeless man who has become a fixture on movie sets in New York City.

Radioman, whose real name is Craig Castaldo, first arrived in New York City in 1979. He had dreams of becoming a radio DJ, but those dreams were quickly dashed when he found himself homeless. Despite his circumstances, Radioman never lost his passion for entertainment. He spent his days hanging around movie sets and television studios, watching the actors and crew at work.

As he spent more time on set, Radioman became a familiar face to the crews. He would often help with small tasks, like carrying equipment or fetching coffee, in exchange for food or a few bucks. His hard work and friendly personality quickly made him a favorite among the film community.

Before long, Radioman found himself being offered small roles in movies. His first credited role was in the 1982 film “The World According to Garp,” directed by George Roy Hill and starring Robin Williams. From there, Radioman’s career took off. He went on to appear in over 100 films, including “The Departed,” “Wall Street,” and “The Avengers.”

Despite his success in Hollywood, Radioman never forgot his roots. He continued to live on the streets of New York City, often sleeping on park benches or in subway stations. He never sought fame or fortune for himself, but instead focused on his love for movies and the people he worked with.

Radioman’s contributions to the film industry didn’t go unnoticed. In 2012, he was the subject of a documentary called “Radioman,” which chronicled his life and career. The film featured interviews with celebrities like George Clooney, Meryl Streep, and Johnny Depp, all of whom had worked with Radioman over the years.

In 2015, Radioman’s beloved boombox, which he carried with him everywhere, was stolen. The theft prompted an outpouring of support from the film community, who banded together to raise money for a new one. Radioman was overwhelmed by the gesture, saying, “I’m just a homeless guy with a radio. I can’t believe all this is happening to me.”

Sadly, Radioman passed away in 2019 at the age of 75. His legacy lives on, however, through the many films he appeared in and the people he touched with his kind heart and infectious spirit.

Radioman’s story is a reminder that talent and passion can come from unexpected places. Despite facing countless challenges, he never lost his love for movies or his desire to be a part of the industry. His perseverance and dedication to his craft have left a lasting impact on the film community and serve as an inspiration to all who knew him.
