Chuck Picerni

Chuck Picerni was born March 29, 1961 in New York. His father, Charles Picerni, left NYC shortly after Chuck's birth to work in Los Angeles. After establishing himself as a stuntman, Charles moved his wife and son to the west coast as well.

At the age of six, Chuck went to the set of Batman with his father. It only took one slide down the bat pole for Chuck to realize he wanted to follow in his fathers footsteps. When he was 16 years old, he worked his first stunt on the television show, Starsky and Hutch.

Chuck has continued his amazing career working on television shows, films, music videos and commercials. He started as a young, very promising stuntman and now is one of the most sought after stunt coordinators/2nd Unit Directors in the motion picture industry.

A Note From Tony Scott


From my first day on a movie set on the original Batman series (as i am shown here sitting on Adam West's lap) I knew in my heart that my love and passion for a career started there.

My desire and thrill to create action sequences as a stunt coordinator and 2nd unit director has not waivered at all in my 34 year career. If anything, my love and passion for what I do in this business gets stronger, from the amazing friends and crew I have been blessed to work with, to the stunt people I have hired, and their amazing abilities, to being able to create and design my style of action for some the biggest films in the industry.

My two sons, CJ and Chad drive me to be the best I can be for them. The film industry allows me to achieve all of my career goals everyday on set, still to this day.
