If this ever happens, they gotta get DeNiro to play him. Separated at birth?!!

Deniro very successfully played a Jewish bookie in Casino. Why not a lucky, Jewish merchant? The eyes on Zino are taken directly from Deniro's "I'm overacting as a mobster" look. LOL

Zino's story, or what I know of it, could be interesting. The weird part about it all is that he really wasn't that gifted as a merchant. He got lucky, went to the right places (regarding staying alive and staying afloat), formed a good partnership and created a product that took off. That "every man" perspective in a period piece from pre and into WWII is always sexy. Good actors, good drama and a name we all know sound good.

Anyone read his (auto, I believe) Biography?
