Dredd: You killed innocent people—!

Armand Anthony Assante, Jr. (born October 4, 1949) is an Emmy Award-winning American actor and That Guy
. With his intimidating stare and raspy voice, he often plays hammy or intense villains although he does possess plenty of range. His portrayal of Big Bad
Rico in the poorly-received Sylvester Stallone
adaptation Judge Dredd
earned him the dubious honor of being a Memetic Mutation
- Dyeing for Your Art: He gained nearly 50 lbs to play John Gotti.
- Large Ham: Has a habit of devouring scenery whole.
- Plays Great Ethnics: Due to his ambigious ethnicity, he's played a variety of nationalities. He's actually of mixed Italian/Irish ancestry.
