Steven Rizzo is an actor, best known for his roles in The Machine of Munich series.


Steven met Scott Pincus in their German class in late 2014, and the two became good friends. For the next few years, Scott never made any movies with Steven, though the two remained friends over the years. Steven was present for the screening of Isarus in April 2016. 


In April 2017, Scott worked with Steven and several other actors, including friends Josh Nedved and Trevor Boyce, to make The Machine of Munich. The film served as a project for their German class, with the prompt having the film center around a "mechanical doppelgänger". Steven played the villainous Doctor Steinfeld in the film, as well as his mechanical doppelgänger. The film was released on April 10, and screened in class several days later. 

After graduating high school, Scott maintained contact with Steven. In October 2017, Steven and several other actors began discussions with Scott about making a sequel to the film. Steven filmed the project, The Trial of Munich: The Machine of Munich II, with new and old cast members in early November. Steven played Doktor Steinfeld's second doppelgänger in the film, which was released on November 10 - seven months after the first film. 


On February 2, 2018, Scott texted Steven and several other actors about the prospect of a third and final Machine in Munich film. Steven agreed to participate in the film, which will not serve as a German project unlike the previous installments. Steven began shooting the film, titled The Battle of Munich: The Machine of Munich III, from May to June. He reprises his role as Doctor Steinfeld, the main antagonist of the first film, who is resurrected in the story; he cameos as Steinfeld's third doppelgänger, who is used as a vessel for Steinfeld's revival. Steven also appears as two goons - Frederick, and a scarfed goon.
