I can't play because I know who he is. Sorry. I think if I classify him I'll also give it away.

I think he's stunning...

This is Armand Assante, he is an American Actor from Cornwall, New York. His father was an Italian American, i believe with ancestry from around Naples, and his mother was Irish american. To me he looks mainly southern Italian but in some pictures as the one above he has a bit of an Irish shape to his face and head a bit if that makes sense...Hes a great actor, I especially love him in the film Kidnapped!

It could be, when I saw it I found it familiar, it reminded me of someone I've known specifically Aragon.

He looks very Mediterranean to me. At most angles I think he looks very Italian, which has unfortunately meant that he's often been type cast by Hollywood playing mobsters. Not that he hasn't been excellent in those roles, mind you. He did get to play other kinds of parts too. One was in a movie where he played Napoleon, and he was in 1492, and Kidnapped, as has been said.

In that third picture he looks very Spanish to me, as Maleth and Carlos guessed. The picture is from a film where he played a Cuban band leader. It's called The Mambo Kings and also featured Antonio Banderas. It doesn't get much better than that for me. :) He was able, in that picture, to also showcase his musical talent. He's an excellent violinist, apparently, on top of everything else.

@Carlos,
Unfortunately, his name appears when you click to enlarge.

@Dagne,
It's a very Italian look, but it's not the only Italian look. We have a lot of variation.

Atlanto-Med, perhaps? Heavier on the Mediterranean, though. His looks changed in mid-life, and he looks just more Med there.

It's very nice you use your grandfather's picture as your avatar. :)

yes he has a very Italian look considering that hes only half. However, i could also see him well as a frenchman from southern france. Hes got a great face though for dramatic roles, im suprised hes not more famous than he is.

Yes, southern French or Spanish as well, as others have said. Maybe it was because of Hollywood typecasting. He also had a very urban U.S. kind of voice, and it seems that unlike a lot of actors he wasn't able to alter it very much.

I think the Italian/Belgian actor Fabrizio Rongione has similar eyes and nose, but the resemblance is only from certain angles.

The Italians and the French share a border and borders are porous. :)

Jean Claude Killy and Claudio Marchisio-not so different I think, although certainly not identical

Actually, Stefano Casiraghi, who was all northern Italian, unlike Marchisio, is probably closer. So sad what happened to him...

Its something with the eyes definitely. Everybody keeps saying they see Spanish, but idk maybe because I lived in ny for five years his face just screams Italian too me so I can't see the Spanish so much. Italians are some how just good look people I think, despite having rather larger noses I've always thought them to be a good looking people. They have larger features but at the same time they are fine featured and obviously good complexions make a difference

I think those of us who can easily see Assante as Spanish have these kinds of looks in mind. Despite the insanity going on at various anthrofora, there's quite a bit of overlap in the Southern European populations in terms of phenotype, alongside some looks that are quite particular and unique.

See Silvestre looks very Italian to me, and so does the last guy. The middle one looks hmm too western to be Italian he looks almost anglo. Yes there is definitley overlap I still see Assante as more of a distinct Italian look to me.

I'm amazed sometimes by the ressemblances people see that would be shared by different men; I don't see so much.
in the present post, Silvestre seems to me a very good example of a "mean mediterranean"; not 'atlanto-med', not the "infantile" type of most of first 'anatolian-danubian' types, who had more steep frontals, noses with rounder tips, not inclined downwards -
the man named Gonzalez (Spanish) has more 'cromagnoid' input in his face;
by the way, the first actor at the beginning of this thread seemed to me very very south-central Italian, so not a typical 'mediter' type, but a mix where I don't see evidence of something very 'dinaric'.

MOESAN
20-10-16, 20:08
add
Silvestre, "mean mediter', has the slight input of something South-Caucasus, Near-Eastern (jaw a bit stronger than the first 'mediters', frontal a bit more receding, stronger pilous system: viril 'mediter', a type which can be seen at high enough level in Iran too. Surely a mix between already close southern types; the first peasants reaching West Europe were less "viril"like, less strong in face but greater skulled, more "cerebral"like, I think. The today 'mediter' types so called 'ibero-insular' through abuse, are this mean between these western ones and more eastern ones, the achieved mix arriving in West from South-East Europe at Chalcolithic for the most, not very sooner.
So if somebody say TODAY Silvester looks Spanish, he is right.
