Wiseguy Trivia

The organization that Vincent Terranova worked for was the "OCB" (Organized Crime Bureau).

Vincent actually spent some time in a New Jersey prison in order to be more convincing as a potential Wiseguy (a syndicate enforcer). Spending time in the penitentiary also allowed him to make contacts with other criminals and show that he was tough enough to be an enforcer.

In episode #3, "New Blood", Sonny accidentally caused an explosion. Then he said, "Did I do that?" That was identical to what Steve Urkle on "Family Matters" would later say whenever he broke something.

There were three episodes of Wiseguy that were produced but were not broadcast. Their titles were: "Point of No Return", "Dead Right", and "Changing Houses".

Ken Wahl chose that name as a stage name as a way to show his appreciation to a real-life man named Ken Wahl who heroically gave his life to save the actor Ken's father's life in the Vietnam War.

Ken certainly didn't have any problems attracting beautiful women. His first wife, "Corinne Alphen-Wahl" was a Penthouse Pet of the Year and his third wife, "Shane Barbi" was a Playboy model and appeared on many magazine covers. Shane was one-half of the popular "Barbi Twins" along with her sister, "Sia Barbi".

The Wiseguy TV show had a nice time slot on Thursday nights from 9:00 to 10:00 PM. As competition, ABC was airing the first half of the "CBS Thursday Night Movie" and NBC offered "Cheers" and "Night Court".

Ken Wahl was working as a gas station attendant when he decided to head for Los Angeles to see if he could become a star!
