DonJuan Carleone was a 25 year old dishwasher at a New York City restaurant. He’s a high school graduate trying to work his way through community college. He shares a small one-room apartment with his younger brother, Joey. It was a tight fit. DJ and Joey grew up in Wright City, MO with their single mother, who struggled with drug addiction their whole lives. The move to NYC meant starting a new life where no one knew them and there were no misconceptions about their characters.
