Rusy Mllio is played by Frankie Valli. Rusty was a capo in the Lupertazzi crime family and was married to Gianna Millio. Rusty was a close associate of Little Carmine and considered to be one of the instigators in Little Carmine's power play following boss Carmine Lupertazzi's death. After Lupertazzi's death, Rusty turned down the position as head of the Lupertazzi crime family but later regretted his decision afterwards. Often accompanied by Eddie Pietro, a Lupertazzi soldier who acts as Rusty's driver. Helped Angelo Garepe orchestrate the hit on Joe Peeps (with Tony Blundetto as the hitman) after telling Little Carmine "We'll steamroll right over John. And I predict the guys in the street in Brooklyn and Queens will welcome us as fuckin' heroes! It'll be easy..." He is based on Gambino crime family capo Nicholas Corozzo who disliked the family's leadership under John Gotti after the murder of Paul Castellano. Since the truce and Johnny Sack's arrest, Rusty refused to be in the same room as acting boss Phil Leotardo. Johnny Sack ordered a hit on Rusty (whom he referred to as "The Mayor of Munchkin Land") through Tony because he felt Rusty was likely try and wrest power away from him while he was in prison. In the episode, "Luxury Lounge" Rusty and Eddie Pietro were assassinated in Rusty's driveway by Italian hitmen contracted by Tony.

Rusty is portrayed by Frankie Valli. In the season 1 episode "46 Long", Tony brings his mother, Livia, some flowers which were brought from the "same florist that Frankie Valli uses when he comes to Jersey." Christopher Moltisanti also classes Valli as one of the great Italian-American singers. There is also a scam of selling stolen Frankie Valli concert tickets with Tony Soprano.
