    Joseph didn't even consider an acting career until a music scholarship took him to the University of Miami where a drama coach heard Mascolo's voice. From then he became a candidate for a Fulbright Scholarship to study orchestral conducting, but he declined this as the thoughts of acting was appealing to him so much so that he studied theatre and accepted a seat in the clarinet section of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra! Since then he has been seen Off-Broadway, and in other productions as well as in film and television. Mascolo is friends with Luciano Pavarotti, with whom he sang a duet with in the film 'Yes, Giorgio!'.

    In his spare time, Mascolo is an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Joseph is that he has a street named after him in Ocilla, Georgia.
