Barry Newman, the young lawyer “Petrocelli”, is in his early 80s today and leads a quieter life. The American had his last appearance in a film in 2015 in the rather unknown drama “Raise Your Kids on Seltzer”.

Newman celebrated his greatest successes in the film business in the 1970s around the time when he was also seen on TV as “Petrocelli”. He played the leading roles in “The Defense Lawyer”, “Top Secret”, “Fear Is The Key” and “City On Fire”.

In “The Blue Diamond” he played alongside Sonja Kirchberger in 1993. At the end of the nineties, Newman shot “The Limey” and the comedy “Bowfinger’s Big Number” for the revenge drama.
