Johnny is in his 30s. His occupation is a Mafia associate. Johnny has short black hair. Johnny wears a purple suit.

When there is a shoot-out in Fat Tony's mansion, and Johnny is shot by accident. When asked where he is injured, he says, " I ain't sayin' nothin'!", and when asked what to tell the doctor, he says, "Tell 'em to suck a lemon."
