Cypher, the resentful member of Morpheus's team, was played by Joe Pantoliano. This actor would become best known as the unhinged mobster Ralph Ciferetto (who lost his head) on the trailblazing cable series The Sopranos. Afterward, Pantoliano would return to being a constantly-working bit player in film and TV. Next year, he will star in the TV movie More Time With Family.
