Pat Renella

Pat Renella (born 1929) is an American actor of Italian descent, born and raised in Chicago. His motion picture debut was as an engineer in the space drama X-15 (1961) starring David McLean and Charles Bronson.

Renella starred in the stageplay Bullfight, which opened at the Coronet Repertory Theatre on La Cienega Blvd in West Hollywood on November 17, 1961.
He was a working actor, mostly playing small parts as gangster types and hoods.
After playing an uncredited part as a man in the movie The Silencers (1966) starring Dean Martin and Stella Stevens, with Victor Buono, Renella had an uncredited small part in Riot on Sunset Strip (1967) starring Aldo Ray. He then played the role as Claude Sadi in Dayton's Devils (1968) starring Rory Calhoun, Leslie Nielsen, and Lainie Kazan. That same year, Renella played Johnny Ross, a Mafia informant scheduled to testify in San Francisco, in Bullitt starring Steve McQueen, Robert Vaughn, and Jacqueline Bisset.
He was the "Viceroy" man.

Renella's guest appearances on television include the hit shows Route 66, Combat!, Planet of the Apes, Mannix, The High Chaparral, McCloud, The Rockford Files, The Streets of San Francisco, Policewoman, Hunter, The Dukes of Hazzard and the soap opera General Hospital.
One year when he attended the Academy Awards, he went over to Ginger Rogers at a party afterward and asked her to dance. She said yes, but told him to come back when they played something slower, which he did.
Renella played the manager of the inn in the sci-fi horror drama Moonchild (1974) starring Victor Buono and John Carradine, and he played Duke in Run for the Roses (1977) starring Panchito Gomez and Vera Miles.
He played a policeman in the comedy Beverly Hills Brats (1989) starring Burt Young, Martin Sheen, and Terry Moore, and was shown flubbing a line in the bloopers shown over the end credits.
