is an Italian character actor born in Rome, Italy on January 19, 1926. As an actor he has participated in numerous
films since the mid-1950s; endowed with a weak but clear and harmonious voice,
in the past he was also active as a voice actor; one of his most significant parts is the
voice of the actor Umberto Zuanelli in the film “Culo e camicia” (1981).
As a film actor,
Fernando Cerulli has distinguished himself for his acting skills in different
genres since 1955, especially in comedies and detective films; a meeting with
director Fernando Di Leo resulted in an almost twenty-year artistic association
for Cerulli, who directs him in several films, swinging his artistic verve
between the poliziottesco genre and the erotic thrillers.
Among his most
significant roles is that of the hotel keeper in “Milan caliber 9” ( 1972 ), the
jeweler in “Diamanti sporchi di sangue” (1978) and finally the Prince of
Collepardo in “La Carbonara” (2000), which was his last appearance on big
in five Euro-westerns all in supporting roles with maybe his best remembered
role as Doc Clan in “Apocalypse Joe”.
