Umberto Fantoni in I marziani hanno 12 mani (1964)
I Marziani - Croupier.jpg

Active in Italian cinema since at least the early 1950s, this prolific generico specialized in playing parts as a croupier and can be seen playing that role in endless films from the 50s, 60s and 70s. He sporadically appeared in other types of roles too, and is also present in several fotoromanzi, but always uncredited.
He was finally found credited by Ciavazzaro in the fotoromanzo Rose et Reseda Operation Star V N.1, August 1968.

Our croupier has a quite nice speaking role in I figli del leopardo (1965) as the card dealer which is large enough to be credited. Of course that doesn't mean he is :)

Are all these actors known?

I think too he could be credited in this one, but then i forget to keep searching for the actors, maybe this is the good time to do it

Ugo Bonardi is credited also in L'esorciccio, Il sogno di Zorro (1975) and in the first episode of L'amaro caso della baronessa di Carini as Nele Carnazza

The other actors are know from what i see.
