Grease Wiki

Sonny LaTierri, is a character from Grease and a member of the T-Birds. His girlfriend is Marty Maraschino. In the 1978 film he is portrayed by Michael Tucci, in the 2016 live broadcast by Andrew Call


Sonny is the funny smartass T-Bird, as he likes to joke around. He has a crush on Marty - member of the Pink Ladies - but she doesn't seem to reciprocate until the end of the movie.

Sonny is Italian, brash, and "takes no crap from nobody" - except for Principal McGee. He can be a bit of a jerk at times, razzing Rizzo when Kenickie and the T-Birds picked her up at Frenchy's house.

At the National Dance-Off, he spiked the punch with whiskey - replying "Washing my hands" when queried by Mr.Rudie.

During the Hand Jive scene, presumed to be a bit drunk, he cut in on Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsen, pulling her away from Danny, allowing Cha-Cha to cut in.


Sonny is a sturdily built older teenage boy with black curly hair and a cocky smile.
