Early Life And Education

David Stephen Caruso was born on January 7, 1956, in Forest Hills, Queens, New York. He was the son of Joan, a librarian, and Charles Caruso, a magazine and newspaper editor.

Caruso grew up alongside his sibling, Joyce Caruso. Caruso attended Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Catholic School in Forest Hills, followed by Archbishop Molloy High School in nearby Briarwood, graduating in 1974.


Caruso‘s first movie appearance was in the 1980 film Getting Wasted, where he played Danny. However, his breakout role came two years later in the film An Officer and a Gentleman (1982), where he portrayed Topper Daniels as “the cadet who nearly drowned.” This performance is credited as the role that helped get Caruso noticed.

Throughout the remainder of the 1980s, Caruso went on to appear in supporting roles in several other films, including “First Blood” (1982), “Blue City” (1986), “China Girl” (1987), and “Twins” (1988). These supporting roles helped establish Caruso as a rising talent in the industry during that decade.

Caruso appeared as a police officer in the crime thrillers King of New York (1990) and Mad Dog and Glory (1993). While filming 1991’s Hudson Hawk, he used method acting, refusing to speak with anyone on set because his character, Kit-Kat, was mute after having his tongue bitten off.

In 2002, Caruso returned to television in his first successful role since NYPD Blue, playing police Lieutenant Horatio Caine in the CSI spin-off series CSI: Miami. He was the first actor in the franchise to play the same character on three of the five CSI series.

He was notorious for routinely using one-liners at the start of each programme. Many of these involve him putting on his distinctive sunglasses mid-sentence and going off-screen just as the main theme begins.
