Having made his own short film, Christmas Break, in 2007, Matt stepped behind the camera again, as Creative Consultant, to help fellow actor Chris Messina with his directorial debut, Alex of Venice, starring Don Johnson, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Derek Luke as well as helping friend Blake Robbins develop his festival hit indie film, the gritty Sublime and Beautiful. He earned a producer credit for his developmental contributions to the indie film, Limerence, in which he also stars and has begun to develop projects, including a feature film based on "The Long Run", the true story of NYC Firefighter and triathlete, Matt Long, who battled back from a nearly fatal bike accident to compete again in the New York City Marathon and the Lake Placid Ironman as well as writing original screenplays.
In July of 2017, Matt launched his podcast, 10,000 "No"s with Matthew Del Negro, where he sits down with top-shelf folks from all walks of life about the rejections they've had to endure and struggles they've had to overcome on their journey to where they are today. It is available on iTunes, Spotify and at 10000nos.com.

Matthew Del Negro has built an impressive career by playing a wide range of roles in features, television and theater, including juicy turns on ABC's "Scandal", HBO's "The Sopranos", NBC's "The West Wing", Showtime's "The United States of Tara", MTV's popular "Teen Wolf and, now, "Goliath" on Amazon's Prime Video with Billy Bob Thornton.
Matt's Hollywood success has been well earned, as he began his career in small theater productions in New York before landing a pivotal recurring role on Season 4 of HBO's groundbreaking series, "The Sopranos" opposite James Gandolfini and Edie Falco. Using that momentum, Matt segued onto NBC's critically-acclaimed "The West Wing" and Showtime's "The United States of Tara", toggling the line between drama and comedy while returning to the boards in A.C.T.'s sold-out run of David Mamet's "Speed the Plow" to play the role of Bobby Gould, directed by Loretta Greco. Eventually, his portrayal of gay male prostitute, Michael, on the smash hit "Scandal" gained him wide recognition as an actor with range. He followed that with a turn in the critical and Box Office hit, Wind River, starring Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen before landing a coveted role on the 2nd Season of Amazon's Goliath, which releases June 15, 2018
