Michael Sergio is an actor, most famous for parachuting into Shea Stadium during Game 6 of the 1986 World Series, wearing a sign proclaiming "Let's Go Mets". Immediately arrested, Sergio spent a short time in jail because he would not reveal the name of the pilot who flew him over Queens that evening. Senator Al D'Amato later intervened on his behalf, and Sergio was released.
Sergio won a Daytime Emmy for directing the Ringling Bros. 1996 TV Circus Special and was nominated for an Emmy for Creating the Wizard of Oz on Ice.
Sergio also wrote and directed the independent feature Under Hellgate Bridge, featuring The Sopranos regulars Dominic Chianese, Vincent Pastore, and Frank Vincent.
