Bio Tina Morasco Biography

Tina hails from the gritty, suburban landscape of Boonton, New Jersey – a town best known as the punch line of many jokes in the Sopranos. When she wasn’t playing touch football in the street with her brother, Nick, or listening to Beatles songs backwards to find out if Paul really was dead, she was performing…in any way she could. From cheerleading and band competitions, to ballet recitals and school plays, Tina was always rehearsing for something.

She attended Rutgers University and graduated in 1990 with a BA in Communications. Having absolutely no idea what to do with that degree, Tina found herself, days after graduation, pushing the mail cart at the prestigious William Morris Agency as an agent trainee. After three years at WMA, she was recruited by ICM (International Creative Management) to help create and build their scale voiceover department. While being an agent was an incredibly rewarding experience, Tina knew she had yet to satisfy the acting bug that was still buzzing inside of her. So, having gained perspective of the business side of acting (oh, alright… despite having gained this perspective), she decided to trade in her (next to the) corner office overlooking Central Park, for a spot on a dirty classroom floor back at Rutgers University in order to pursue her Master’s Degree in Acting from William Esper’s, Mason Gross School of the Arts.

Armed with a shiny diploma and the number to a killer Beverly Hills hair salon, Tina moved out to Los Angeles to begin her career in 1999 and never looked back. Since then, she has worked steadily in film and television. Credits include: Parks and Recreation, Two and a Half Men, Numb3rs, Boston Legal, CSI, Cold Case and many more. She can also be heard every Monday night as the voice of the HGTV hit series, Love It or List It as well as countless TV and radio commercials and promos.  Tina is currently studying Spiritual Psychology at the University of Santa Monica and will receive her second Master’s Degree in August 2013.  She is the proud mom to a hilarious 9-year-old daughter, named Callie, who makes every day better than the one before.

25 Things You Don’t Know About Me…

c_callie_basketball_2013-12871. I think the world would be a much happier place if everyone would eat like I do. I mean, come on…how can you NOT be happy if everything you eat is covered in frosting and/or sprinkles?

2. I am so competitive and simultaneously so dysfunctional when it comes to watching my daughter struggle, that I actually caught myself trying to help her cheat on her eye exam.

3. My dirty little secret is that I’m addicted to sappy 70′s/80′s love songs. Yes, I am the one crying on the 405 while belting out Eric Carmen’s classic, All By Myself.

4. I am currently getting my Master’s Degree in Spiritual Psychology…however, that doesn’t stop me from hitting the Burger King drive thru on the way in and out of class. Namaste.

5. I always feel like something big is just around the corner…I really do.

6. With all due respect to my friends who are cat owners, I am not a fan of the species in general. They are too independent for my liking. I need the co-dependency that only a dog can offer.

7. I am very grateful for the life I’ve created.

8. I over react to small things and under react to huge things…Great to have around when you’re experiencing chest pains – not so much fun when the waitress tells me they are out of the brownie sundae.

9. I am convinced that my dog is actually stuffed with Tempur-pedic foam. When I wake up in the morning, he has completely conformed to the shape of my body.

10. I am an out of the closet air drummer.

11. I am also out of the closet regarding my love of Bon Jovi and other Jersey hair bands of the 80′s.

12. I still have aol but, hey…in the words of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, “I’ma take your grandma’s style!”

13. I am terrified of the Wicked Witch of the West in the Wizard of Oz. TERRIFIED!

14. On a recent road trip with my daughter, I voted Adam Levine as the celebrity I would most like to wrestle. I think his underarms would smell nice.

15. I have never eaten the following: (this is only a partial list) – broccoli, cauliflower, hummus, pears, beets, a knish (just think that’s a funny word – but also have never tried one) most items on a sushi menu…I could go on all night – but you get the idea.

16. I have almost no practical life skills so please – eat me first if we are stranded on an island. With all the preservatives and red dye number 6 in me – I should be quite a tasty treat!

17. People with any kind of Asian accent give me an inexplicable internal tickle. I could listen to them speak forever.

18. Finding the time to meditate totally stresses me out…Hmmm

19. If I could have any one super power it would be teleportation. I keep asking my friends who work for Aerospace where we are with that…they always falsely assume I am joking.

20. I still find myself quoting Seinfeld episodes more than 15 years after the fact. Why, just the other night “I dipped, I took a chip, and then, I dipped again!”

21. I watch The View. There…I said it.

22. Turns out, I’m a bit over-animated when playing charades…sorry to those of you who have found out the hard way.

23. I am dedicated to becoming a better person today than I was yesterday. Fortunately, the bar has been set fairly low.

24. I never knew bats were real until I went to grad school for acting and saw one in a rehearsal hall. I honestly thought they were fictional – like vampires. Wait…vampires aren’t real too, are they?

25. I may or may not exaggerate slightly when telling a story. While I will admit to enjoying dramatic effect…I did, in fact, break my knee while projectile vomiting on a small Cuban woman. Can’t make that up that kind of gold.
