Birth 13 september 1938 at Bologna (Italie)
Death 13 july 1985 (at 46 years) at Page (USA)

Claudio Cassinelli (13 September 1938 – 13 July 1985) was an Italian film, stage and television actor.

Born in Bologna to Giuseppina Tafani and Antonio Cassinelli, a well known opera singer, he had two sisters, Paola Cristina and Loretta. Cassinelli had begun his career in theater, later dedicating himself to film and television work. His film career is divided equally between auteur films (with, among others, Paolo and Vittorio Taviani, Liliana Cavani, Pasquale Festa Campanile, Damiano Damiani) and genre films, especially poliziotteschi and action films.

Cassinelli died in Page, Arizona, at 46, during the filming of a scene in Sergio Martino's Vendetta dal futuro, while he was on a helicopter that due to pilot error crashed into Navajo Bridge. He left three children, Sebastiano, Filippo and Giovanni.

In the year 2072, set in a dystopia Rome, Italy, WBS TV's chief of programming, Cortez (Claudio Cassinelli), is fuming at the constituently high ratings enjoyed by a rival American TV show, 'Kill-Bike'. The show has features gladiatorial fights to the death on motorcycles, and has made a hero of a man called Drake (Jared Martin) the unbeaten champion. Cortez is all the more bitter because it was he who discovered Drake in the first place. WBS's current answer to the American show is 'The Danger Game', a simulation game showing the hallucinations of a contestant experiencing the approach of violent death. Fear, panic, and screaming at the extremely realistic simulations triggers a further increase in the intensity. Unfortunately for the station, even this spectacle fails to compete against the American show.
