Joe LoCicero Wiki Biography

Joe LoCicero was born on Long Island, New York USA, on 9 August 1986, so under the zodiac sign of Leo and holding American nationality – he rose to prominence thanks his modelling career, while he’s also an actor.

Joe LoCicero

Joe was quite popular at high school thanks to his attractive looks, and although many girls told him he could be a model, Joe never took them seriously. However, he was spotted by a modelling scout, and his career was launched even before he matriculated from high school – as he was already working and his career was progressing in the right direction, Joe didn’t enroll at college, but rather pursued his (now) dreams of becoming a worldwide popular model and actor.

Career of a model and an actor

Joe was watching a movie in New Jersey with his girlfriend when he was noticed by a modelling scout, who invited him to attend his first photo-shoot – although he was a bit skeptical, Joe accepted the offer and became a model as soon as the photo-shoot was done. He has since worked with some of the most popular worldwide-known brands such as Abercrombie & Fitch, Tommy Hilfiger and Juicy Couture, among others. He launched his acting career in 2016, when he won a role in the “Welcome to Willits” movie. Praised for his performance, he went on to act alongside Gina Rodriguez (who would later become his wife) in the “Jane the Virgin” TV series, which made Joe somewhat popular and recognized in the film industry.

He then served as the stunt choreographer for the “Spaghettiman” movie shot in 2016, and he also has some voice acting credits, as he can be heard in the “Battlefield 1” video game, while performing a couple of times on the radio with the “Long Beach Shakespeare Company”.

Love life and wife

Joe met Gina Rodriguez when he was cast to appear in the “Chapter Thirty-Nine” episode of the “Jane the Virgin” TV series in 2016 – although Joe was playing Don Quixote who was a stripper in the series, this was not what really attracted Gina to Joe, but it gave them an opportunity to meet one another, and it didn’t take them long until they went on their first date, and launched their relationship.

They made it official in November 2016, and could have often be seen attending red carpet events together, including the Marie Claire Young Women’s Honors Awards. In July 2018, Joe got on his knee and asked Gina to marry him, and the wedding took place in May 2019, a rather modest ceremony as the two only invited their closest friends and families.

Joe hasn’t talked about any other women he might have dated before Gina, but a rumor has it that the popular actor was quite a womanizer before meeting her. Before Joe, Gina was dating the actor Henry Esteve for a year, and the actor Ben Schartz for a couple of months.
