Kirk Morris (born 26 August 1946) is an Italian former bodybuilder and actor.

Born in Venice as Adriano Bellini, while at university Morris devoted himself to bodybuilding and thanks to his physique he was chosen by the director Tanio Boccia to play the title role in The Triumph of Maciste.[1] He subsequently starred in several other peplum films, including The Witch's Curse by Riccardo Freda.[1] After the decline of the genre, he appeared in several adventure films, then he retired in the early 1970s. He was also an actor of fotoromanzi.[1]
