  Summary  

Matthew Charles Porretta is an American television and film actor.

Porretta was born into an incredible show-biz family: his father, Frank II, is a trained opera singer and accomplished actor. His mother, Roberta, is also a trained singer and was Miss Ohio 1956. Porretta wasted no time in getting involved with the entertainment industry. By the age of 25 he was already a veteran of Broadway and a student at the Manhattan School of Music. In 1990 Porretta broke into television with recurring roles on shows like Wings and Beverly Hills, 90210. In 1993 he was given his first major movie role, as Will Scarlet O'Hara in Mel Brooks' spoof Robin Hood: Men in Tights. In a twist of irony, Porretta would star as Robin Hood in his own TV series four years later. Since 1997 he has starred in many independent movies and been featured in commercials for McDonald's and Arrowhead Water. In 1994 he appeared in the original Broadway cast of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Passion.

Porretta has four siblings, all of whom have found their way into show business in some form or another: His brother Frank III has become an internationally recognized opera singer. His other brother, Greg, has guest-starred with Matthew on television. His sisters, Anna and Roberta, also dabble .

In August 2009 it was revealed that he would be the voice actor of the protagonist in the video game title Alan Wake, a psychological action thriller developed by Remedy Entertainment.
