Nicholas Worth (September 4, 1937 - May 7, 2007) was an American character actor who portrayed General Marzaq and Premier Romanov in Westwood Studios' Command & Conquer series of games, Emperor: Battle for Dune, and also voice-acted as Colonel Bulba/Mr. Jones in Freedom Fighters. He also took up several smaller roles in sci-fi programs like Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. He began with a low-level TV career, notably appearing on Charlie's Angels as a thug-on-skates. He broke into movies, and established his reputation with his outrageously hammy performance as the tormented lunatic killer in the low-budget cult classic horror film Don't Answer the Phone (1980).
He was a large, bulky, balding (later bald) man with a wide mouth and a powerful bass voice.
Worth is best known for his stellar performance as Bruno in the 1982s Swamp Thing which is a big screen version of the comic book Swamp Thing. Famed horror director Wes Craven said working with Nicholas in Swamp Thing was a highlight of his career.
He also had minor roles as henchmen, notably as Thug #1 in The Naked Gun, Cup Breaker in No Way Out, Ryles and Hower in two episodes of Knight Rider, as a butler/assassin in Action Jackson, and as one of Larry Drake's goons named Pauly in Darkman and also appeared in Plughead Rewired: Circuitry Man II. He appeared in the beginning of Heartbreak Ridge as a convict who gets beaten up by Clint Eastwood.
Worth appeared on a 1991 episode of the TV series Night Court as Mr Birnbach.
He was a born-again Christian who was born Jewish.
