Veteran little old man Italian character actor Leonardo Cimino has been steadily working in both movies and TV shows alike since the late 50s. A small, frail and wizened fellow with a gaunt face, a slight build and a distinguished air about him, Cimino often portrays shrewd Mafiosa types, nice elderly gents, and various men of the cloth which include priests, cardinals and even the Pope in "Monsignor." Cimino has twice played Nazi concentration camp survivors: he was outstanding as the wise Abraham Bernstein in the excellent science fiction TV mini-series "V" and likewise marvelous as the kindly Scary German Guy in the delightful "The Monster Squad." Leonardo had a nice bit as the Baron's doctor in David Lynch's "Dune." Among the TV shows Cimino has done guest spots on are "Naked City," "The Defenders," "Kojak," "Ryan's Hope," "The Equalizer," "The Hunger," and "Law and Order." Outside of movies and television, Leonardo Cimino has acted on stage in such plays as "The Iceman Cometh," "They Knew What They Wanted," "A Memory of Two Mondays," "Mike Downstairs," "Night Life," "A Passage to India," "Handful of Fire," "The Liar," and "Cyrano de Bergerac."
