Robert Glaudini


Italian-American actor Robert Glaudini made his film debut in the 1971 comedy Lady Liberty (1971) (aka "La mortadella"). Glaudini starred in two offbeat experimental features for underground independent filmmaker Jon Jost: he's seedy private investigator "Frank Goya" in Angel City (1977) and the titular scuzzy drug dealer in Chameleon (1978). Robert gave a solid and engaging performance as edgy hero "Dr. Paul Dean" in the enjoyably cruddy futuristic 3-D sci-fi/horror schlocker Parasite (1982). Glaudini was effectively nasty as evil magician "DelGatto" in The Alchemist (1983). Robert's other memorable cinematic roles are scientist "Dr. Wolf" in the quirky science fiction sleeper Wavelength (1983), sleazy wrestling promoter "Dr. Tweed" in Grunt! The Wrestling Movie (1985), "FBI agent Nash" in the powerful Mississippi Burning (1988), and creepy high school janitor "Shultz" in the fun teen slasher romp Cutting Class (1989). Glaudini did guest spots on the TV shows Hunter (1984) and Crime Story (1986). Outside of his film and television work, Robert has had a long and distinguished stage career as both an actor and playwright. Glaudini has been a member of the New York stage ensemble "LAByrinth Theater Company" since 2004. He has written the plays "The Poison Tree", "Dutch Heart of Man" and "Jack Goes Boating" (the latter was an acclaimed off-Broadway hit). He is the father of actress Lola Glaudini, and he portrayed her dad on several episodes of the TV series NYPD Blue (1993). He lives in New York City.
