Leone Lookalike

"Leone Lookalike", in Lo sceicco bianco (1952)
This somewhat-chubby unidentified generico has plenty of identifying features to help with recognition - thin lips, large nose, thick neck and, maybe most notably, a head of thick, black hair. It seems he was active in Italian films at least throughout the 50's, 60's and into the start of the 70's.

I'd been aware of him as an Ignazio Leone lookalike in Messalina (hence his unimaginative nickname), and it has been noted that he also bears some resemblance to Franco Cobianchi and Robbie Coltrane. After I matched him in Lo sceicco bianco, Johan and Ciavazzaro also recognised him from several films and voila - we have a new generico!
