This dark, soberfaced actor with hooded eyes has turned in many fine performances since first attracting attention as Sylvester Stallone's brother in Paradise Alley (1978). He has showed a surprising flair for comedy in Private Benjamin (1980), Unfaithfully Yours (1984), and The Marrying Man (1991), although it must be noted that in those films other characters got most of the laughs. Assante was a petulant Mike Hammer in I, the Jury (1982), but made a chilling drug lord in Q&A (1990). Genuine screen stardom seems to have eluded him, but in recent years Assante has racked up some impressive performances in both starring and supporting roles, including The Mambo Kings, 1492: Conquest of Paradise and Hoffa (all 1992), the comic parody Fatal Instinct (1993), and Judge Dredd (1995).
