Pedone, Mario

Mario Pedone in Endgame - Bronx lotta finale (1983)
screenshot44.jpg

Mario Pedone was a hirsute giant supporting actor, active in Italian films in the 70's and 80's.

No biographical details are currently known.

IMDb lists a few appearances from the early 1970's which I have been unable to confirm, but if correct then it seems likely there may be more roles from the mid-late 70's to be found.

For a few years in the early 1980's he appeared in a number of prominent supporting roles and it looked like he was a star on the rise, but it wasn't to be and after 1984 his appearances dwindled to small bit parts in films and TV and following his appearance in Un orso chiamato Arturo in 1992 he vanished completely.

Titles to check
  • Il terrore con gli occhi storti (1972) IMDb
  • Novelle licenziose di vergini vogliose (1973) IMDb as Damned man in hell. I wasn't able to recognise him in the copies available online, but these are both soft and dark so it is possible I missed him.
  • Pugni, pirati e karatè (1973) IMDb as Man at the tavern
  • Ring (1977) Filmdb.it
  • Investigatori d'Italia (1987 TV series) Episode 4: "Lo strano caso del bocciofilo suicida", IMDb as Complice di Crespi
No Mario!
Films where Mario is listed as appearing somewhere online, but cannot be found. There always has to be one!
  • Warrior of the Lost World (1984) IMDb as Trucker with strange necklace. Despite the very precise role description I could not find Mario in the film.

She (1984) credited, as Rudolph.

Here we have the curious sight of Mario in a tutu and make-up. No explanation is given for why he is dressed like this!

Rimini Rimini (1987) credited, role uncertain.

This is the only role found so far where Mario appeared clean-shaven.
