Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Droopy-eyed character actor whose "Monster Mash" looks are as memorable as the sweetly creepy bit parts he has played. Schiavelli lends an unforgettably Gothic air to otherwise minute roles, such as Fredrickson in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" (1975) Salieri's valet in "Amadeus" (1984) and the Subway Ghost in "Ghost" (1990). He also has had an extensive TV career of piquant guest spots on episodes of "Moonlighting" and "Miami Vice" among other series. Schiavelli began in feature films in 1971 with "Taking Off" and continued in small roles for most of the decade. He was a check out man in "For Pete's Sake" (1974), a guard in "Butch & Sundance: The Early Years" (1979), and a monk in "The Frisco Kid" (1979). Film roles were sporadic in the 80s, but in the 90s, Schiavelli could be seen as the organ grinder in "Batman Returns" (1992), Chester, one of Larry Flynt's minions in "The People Versus Larry Flynt" (1996) for his "Cuckoo's Nest" director Milos Forman, and as the jailer in "The Beautician and the Beast" (1997). He first had a regular role on a TV series in 1972, playing a male fashion designer on "The Corner Bar," then in the late 70s had a recurring role on ABC's "Taxi" as the Reverend Gorky....
