Antonio Cantafora (born 2 February 1944) is an Italian film and television actor, sometimes credited as Michael Coby.

Life and career[edit]

Born in Crotone, Cantafora studied acting with Alessandro Fersen, then he made his film debut in 1967.[1] Thanks to a vague resemblance to the actor Terence Hill, in the seventies he starred with Paul L. Smith in a brief series of successful action-comedy films that reprise the Bud Spencer-Terence Hill style.[1][2] Later Cantafora continued his career mainly as character actor, working with prominent directors such as Federico Fellini, Jerzy Skolimowski, Bruno Barreto, Alberto Lattuada, Mauro Bolognini.[1]
