"Risky Business" is the film that put Tom Cruise on the map, practically making him a star overnight. The 1983 film airs at 8 p.m. on Cinemax and features Cruise as an enterprising teenager who turns his house into a brothel while his parents are away. He then falls for a prostitute, earning the wrath of Guido, her pimp, played by Joe Pantoliano.

The beginning of Pantoliano's acting career dates back more than four decades when he appeared as a mugger in the 1974 film "Road Movie." Here is a quiz about his career.
