Jackie Basehart (born as John Anthony Carmine Michael Basehart October 11, 1951) is an Italian-American actor.
Born in Santa Monica, California, Basehart is the son of actors Richard Basehart and Valentina Cortese. For a few years, between the mid 70's and the early 80's, he was among the most requested young actors in Italian cinema, appearing in all sorts of films, even though mainly in supporting roles.
At that time he was called "genius and recklessness" because of his excesses, which had ample space in the Italian gossip columns.
He was sometimes credited as Jack Basehart and John Anthony Basehart.
