Originally from New York, Allan has done stand-up, improv, and off-Broadway shows, including the "Tony 'n Tina's Wedding."
He moved to LA a few years ago, and has played a lot of bad guys on show like "NYPD Blue" and "Michael Hayes." Last year (1999-2000), he was going back and forth between Toronto (where Falcone was shot) and LA, where he played Jennifer Love Hewitt's boss on "Time of Your Life".
He's also a writer who has written plays, screenplays and episodes of several TV shows. Right now he's been commissioned to write a mini-series about Crazy Joe Gallo, the gangster.
