Occupation Film, television actor, stuntman

Nick Dimitri (born December 27, 1932), is a stuntman and actor best known as Charles Bronson's veteran bare-knuckle black leather coat wearing opponent in the climax of Hard Times.

In addition to fisticuffs, his speciality was dying violently on screen. He was a regular stuntman on the World War II TV series The Rat Patrol and a double for action actors Sean Connery and William Smith. He helped set up the great fights in Darker than Amber and Any Which Way You Can.

Dimitri was also memorable playing Angie Dickinson's undead husband in the 1973 cult TV Movie The Norliss Tapes. He later became a fixture in many of Arnold Schwarzenegger's films, stood up to Steven Seagal in Out for Justice, and doubled for the one arm man in the big screen version of The Fugitive.
