If you have a TV, then you’ve probably seen Adam Ferrara. He’s been a regular on network shows for years – both as a talk show guest and as a regular on sitcoms and dramatic shows. Lately, he’s been conquering cable. Adam hosts the American version of “Top Gear” on the History Channel and he starred opposite Edie Falco on Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie.” Before that, he proudly played Chief Needles on the hit FX drama "Rescue Me."
