Pileggi was one of several children born to Maxine, a homemaker, and Vito Pileggi, a defense contractor. His family moved frequently and Pileggi lived in Oregon, California, and Texas before spending most of his adolescence in Turkey. A high school athlete, he also did musical theater as a high school student in Turkey. He attended the University of Texas in Austin and graduated with a degree in business. For a while he worked in Iran as a defense contractor, until the 1979 Iranian revolution caused him and his brother to have to flee the country, barely escaping to Greece.

After returning to Austin from Iran, he performed in local theaters, and continued his acting career with small roles in B-movies, and guest roles in television shows, including the first run of "Dallas."

He met his current wife Arlene Warren on the set of "The X-Files" while she was a stand-in for Gillian Anderson. David Duchovny was the best man in their wedding.
