    Atlantomediterranid with Taurid (Dinarid and/or Armenid, but most probably just Dinarid) influence, in such a way approaching Baskid.

    His hair structure seems somewhat weird, even for a Mediterranid, so it could indicate some remote Negrid influence otherwise not visible in his phenotype. The name Turturro sounds Southern Italian to me.

    You're right, He's of Sicilian descent. The name is also Sicilian.

    Italian (Sicily): metonymic occupational name for a groom, from turturo, a southern form of tortoro ‘straw or hay plait used for strapping horses’
    I always thought his hair was very Negrid.

    I knew of someone who had the same hair style as him, a dark featured Polack, born in England, who also bore an uncanny yet younger countenance as Turturro. Good actor by the way.

    Also reminds me of Bouguereau's female subjects.

    I remember a scene from Do The Right Thing, where some black guy says, "Look at your hair; it's curlier than mine. You know what they say about curly haired Italians."

    I also remember he played a Jew in Barton Fink.

    John Turturro phenotype like other southern italians is more semitic (near eastern) than europid, and knowing his Sicilian background and the fact that he works in the entertainment industry makes me think he is an Italian Yid.
