Joseph D Pistone’s zodiac sign is Virgo. According to astrologers, Virgos are always paying attention to the smallest details and their deep sense of humanity makes them one of the most careful signs of the zodiac. Their methodical approach to life ensures that nothing is left to chance, and although they are often tender, their heart might be closed for the outer world. This is a sign often misunderstood, not because they lack the ability to express, but because they won’t accept their feelings as valid, true, or even relevant when opposed to reason. The symbolism behind the name speaks well of their nature, born with a feeling they are experiencing everything for the first time.

Known for his nearly thirty-year-long career with the FBI, this legendary secret agent successfully infiltrated both the Bonanno and Colombo New York Mafia families. He was one of the first FBI agents to participate in lengthy undercover assignments.
After studying primary school education at Paterson State College in New Jersey, he briefly worked as a teacher before working for the Office of Naval Intelligence, and later, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Evidence he collected during his five-year undercover assignment resulted in the convictions of more than one hundred members of the Mafia.
Though born in Erie, Pennsylvania, he grew up primarily in Paterson, New Jersey. A member of a Sicilian-American family, he met numerous members of the Mafia during his childhood and so was in a unique position to fully understand the inner workings of the Mafia system and successfully impersonate someone belonging to this world.
In a 1997 film based on Pistone's 1998 memoir Donnie Brasco: My Undercover Life in the Mafia, actor Johnny Depp portrayed Pistone (Brasco).
