Who Was Dominick Brascia?
Ann and Dom Brascia on the 29th of May 1956, welcomed their son Dominick to the world; he was born in Coney Island, New York. There is not a lot of information that is available about his early life, but for his high school education, it is known that he attended New Dorp High School.
Dominick Brascia started to appear in movies in the early 1980s and his first role in a film was in the 1984 horror film, They’re Playing with Fire. In this film, he had the minor role of Glenn. His next role was in the film, Friday the 13th: A New Beginning. This was a much bigger film than the first one and although he was relatively young in the movie industry, his performance made it possible for him to land more roles.
Dominick appeared in more movies like 1986’s Evil Laugh and Hard Rock Nightmare which was released in 1988. These were also horror films and the former was the first movie he directed.
Brascia’s acting was not limited to films as he also had roles on television shows. In 1982’s Knight Rider, he had the opportunity to play a minor character. Other television shows he was a part of are, Night Court and Otherworld. His acting career slowed down after the 80s as he had few acting roles in the 90s and early 2000s. Rush Week, Busted, My Life as a Troll and Doin’ Time on Planet Earth are the other films he appeared in; he directed and produced some of them.
While he led a career in cinematic endeavors, he also produced radio shows on the side and for a while, all he did was work as a radio host. He was one of the producers of the Armstrong and Getty Show which aired on 650 KSTE in Sacramento, California. Apart from producing radio shows, he also served as a host. Notably, he hosted the morning show on Fox, Morning Blend, and was in charge of the afternoon segment at WERC Alabama.
For most of his career as an actor and a radio host, Dominick Brascia lived under the radar and was a fan favorite to a certain niche of moviegoers. Things went quite smoothly for him until 2013 when he was in the news for the wrong reasons.
As it happened, Corey Feldman, an actor had released his memoir titled Coreygraphy and thereof, he alleged that a big wig in the film industry has assaulted him and his friend, Corey Haim when they were still teenage boys. At first, Dominick Brascia was considered as the person who had assaulted Haim and Feldman, but Brascia quickly denied having sexual relations with Haim and stated that the actor that actually had sex with the boys was Charlie Sheen.
According to Brascia, Haim told him that Sheen solicited for sex from him when they were shooting Lucas in 1986. Feldman supported Brascia’s claim as he specified that Dominick was not the man who sexually assaulted them; it was Sheen, he stated. Sheen himself kept mum about the allegations and because Corey Haim had died three years before the story came to light, his side of the story was never heard.
