    Default Leonardo Cimino...we hardly knew ye.



    If you watch movies...you have seen this guy.

    Rest In Peace Leonardo Cimino (aka Scary German Guy)
    Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.

    Hey guys. Quint here, taking a little break from SXSW to put some thoughts down about one of our great character actors, Leonardo Cimino. Cimino passed away last week at the age of 94. The news about his death hit just as SXSW started and Iíve been looking for a spare moment to give the man his due.

    Cimino came to film rather late in life, but was a well known and respected stage actor starting in the late Ď40s. He might have come to the stage even earlier had he not enlisted and fought on the European front during WW2. In fact, Cimino was at Normandy. Pretty hardcore.

    Heís performed with Jose Ferrer, Brando, Schell and a million amazing people, but for me he will always be Scary German Guy. I donít mean that as an insult to the manís legacy, but as a genuine loving compliment to the energy and weight he brought to his mentor role in The Monster Squad.
