Early life

Saverio Guerra was born on August 25, 1964 in Brooklyn, New York.

Career

Saverio Guerra often plays New Yorkers.

He made his acting debut in 1989 with a minor role of "Frankie" in Nancy Savoca's romance/comedy True Love. In 1993, he was cast as "Carmen" in Michael J. Fox and Gabrielle Anwar-starrer For Love or Money.

After a role in Mr. Wonderful (1993) and Bad Boys (1995,) he was seen playing one of the lead roles in Under the Bridge (1996.) The same year he was cast as "Sammy Feathers" in television series EZ Streets. Guerra was seen in 5 episodes of the series, from the pilot in October 1996 to the last episode A Ceremony of Innocence in April 1997.

After EZ Streets, he landed one of the central roles in the short-lived comedy television series on Fox, Temporarily Yours. Guerra was seen in all 6 episodes of the series, playing "Caesar Santos" alongside Seth Green (as David Silver,) Debi Mazar (as Deb DeAngelo,) and Joanna Gleason (as Joan Silver.)

In 1997-2000, Guerra played the character of "Willy the Snitch" in television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Beginning December 1998, he took on the recurring role of "Bob" in the television comedy series Becker. He was seen in 90 episodes, starting from the 6th episode of season 1 titled, "Man Plans, God Laughs" until the last episode of season 5 titled, "Daytime Believer." Guerra did not renew his contract for the shortened season 6. Bob's absence in the show was explained by his going on vacation and he was never mentioned again.

In November 2019, Guerra was seen as "Mocha Joe" in Seinfeld episode of season 7 of Larry David's acclaimed television comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm. Starting with the season 10, the "Mocha Joe" character is revived and Guerra will be seen regularly on Curb Your Enthusiasm.
