Percy Hogan in Emanuelle nera n° 2 (1976)
Percy Hogan.jpg

Percy Hogan is an African-American actor who had a career in Italian films during the 1970s and 80s.

Percy's roles from the first half of the 1970s consisted largely of bit parts, many of which were uncredited, but his career really took off in the mid 70s, when his good looks and muscular physique earned him roles in a series of erotic Emanuelle films. He also landed a notable role in Il Casanova di Federico Fellini (1976) as a handsome prince who becomes the sole male conquest of Casanova (Donald Sutherland), but the part ended up deleted from the final version of the film.

Percy spent the rest of the decade appearing in a series of action movies and comedies, and although he was never cast in leading roles, he played substantial parts and was even billed with the coveted "and with" (or similar variants) in the credits. Unfortunately, his career more or less fizzled out at the start of the 1980s. He did continue to act in films until the end of the decade, but the roles he received were both fewer and smaller, and frequently uncredited as well.

There are no known biographical details about Percy other than a quote from Fellini that he was an American dancer.

As there are some noticeable gaps in his filmography, I'm certain that there are quite a few other roles to be found for Percy!

Percy has numerous different roles in Karzan, il favoloso uomo della jungla (1972). He appears most consistently as an ill-fated expedition bearer...

...but he also appears as countless different tribesmen. Since this was a really cheap production, there are actually just three actors playing most of the natives, and Percy can be seen with different costumes and make-up in different shots in the same scene.

Emanuelle nera n° 2 (1976) credited, as Fred Morgan. Percy got his first substantial role in this sequel to the previous year's erotic hit Emanuelle nera, but without that film's star, Laura Gemser. Instead, there's a new Emanuelle (one-film wonder Shulamit Lastri) who is suffering from psychological problems, and Percy is her estranged athlete husband who still loves her.

Emmanuelle bianca e nera (1976) credited, as Elias. This unofficial Emmanuelle movie features Percy in another erotically charged role, this time as a hunky plantation slave who is lusted after by the evil Emmanuelle (Malisa Longo).

Il signor Robinson, mostruosa storia d'amore e d'avventure (1976) credited, as Mandingo. In this "Robinson Crusoe" parody, Percy has a fairly large role as a native tribal warrior competing with Paolo Villaggio over who gets to marry Zeudi Araya.

Il Casanova di Federico Fellini (1976) as Prince Ismail. This was the most prestigious film Percy appeared in and he played a rather significant role, too - portraying a Turkish prince who becomes the sole male conquest of Casanova (played by Donald Sutherland). He's even seen kissing Sutherland. Unfortunately, Percy's entire performance ended up cut from the finished film, but the sequence was later shown in the TV documentary Fellini nel cestino (1984) together with commentary from Fellini. When the interviewer asks who is playing the role, Fellini does not mention Percy by name, but says he was an American dancer.

Emanuelle e gli ultimi cannibali (1977) credited, as Salvador. In his third and final Emanuelle film, Percy is once again portrayed as an object of lust. This time it is the lovely Nieves Navarro/Susan Scott who seduces him, and the two of them engage in a fairly explicit sex scene, though it's not seen very clearly due to being shot through a bunch of leaves in order to give a voyeuristic point of view.

These still photos of Percy's sex scene actually show more details than the film itself does.
