George Eastman (born Luigi Montefiori; August 16, 1942) is an Italian B-movie actor and screenwriter well known for his frequent collaborations with notorious director Joe D'Amato. He is perhaps most famous for his role as the insane, cannibalistic serial killer Nikos Karamanlis in the gory 1980 horror film Anthropophagus: The Grim Reaper. He also played a similar role in its 1981 spiritual successor, Absurd. Both films were directed by D'Amato and written by Eastman.


Ayant commencé sa carrière cinématographique dans des westerns, Montefiori prit son pseudonyme américanisant George Histman, qui devint par la suite George Eastman.

Il devient une figure familière de la série B italienne, où il tient souvent des rôles de méchant grâce à sa haute taille et à son allure inquiétante.

Il fut un acteur récurrent dans les films de Joe D'Amato participant notamment à la période dite « érotico-exotique » du réalisateur en tant qu'acteur et que scénariste. Il tourne aux côtés d'Annj Goren, Lucía Ramírez, Mark Shannon et Dirce Funari sans, comme cette dernière, apparaître dans des scènes hardcore.

Son rôle le plus célèbre fut dans Antropophagus (1980) de D'Amato, dans lequel il joue un tueur cannibale fou, ce qui donna à Eastman le surnom de « l'homme qui se mange lui-même » (en raison d'une scène marquante du film).

À la fin des années 1980, Eastman se retira de la vie d'acteur et se concentra sur celui de scénariste, une fonction qu'il occupe toujours.
