Nicholas Worth (September 4, 1937 – May 7, 2007) was an American character actor who portrayed General Marzaq and Premier Romanov in Westwood Studios' Command & Conquer series of games, Emperor: Battle for Dune, and also voice-acted as Colonel Bulba/Mr. Jones in Freedom Fighters. He also took up several smaller roles in sci-fi programs like Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. He was a large, bulky, balding (later bald) man with a wide mouth and a powerful bass voice, and began with a low-level TV career, appearing in one episode of Charlie's Angels as a kidnapper-on-skates. After appearing in films such as The Glove (1979), he broke into the big time with his performance as the tormented lunatic killer in the low-budget horror film Don't Answer the Phone (1980).

Worth is known for his performance as Bruno in the 1982 film Swamp Thing, a big screen adaptation of the comic book, and specialized in playing menacing, threatening characters. He gave a memorable performance as a homosexual rapist in the 1985 TV movie The Rape of Richard Beck. He also had roles as henchmen and tough guys in films such as City Heat (1984), Doin' Time (1985), The Ladies Club (1986), No Way Out (1987), Hell Comes to Frogtown (1988), Action Jackson (1988), The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! (1988), Darkman (1990, as one of Larry Drake's goons named Pauly), Best of the Best 2 (1993), Plughead Rewired: Circuitry Man II (1996), Barb Wire (1996) and Blood Dolls (1999). He also appeared in the beginning of Heartbreak Ridge (1986) as a convict who gets beaten up by Clint Eastwood.

Worth appeared on a 1991 episode of the TV series Night Court as Mr Birnbach, and later took the part of Kommissar Leber in The Beast Within: A Gabriel Knight Mystery (1995).

Nicholas Worth died of heart failure at Valley Presbyterian Hospital in Van Nuys at the age of 69.

Virgil Travis is a wealthy, soulless psychopath who lives in seclusion in his mansion home with his dwarf butler and maniac right-hand man. Tortured and forcibly mutated as a child by a woman who put him through body transforming procedures, Virgil has an abnormally sized head. Basking in the suffering, degradation, pain, and death of others, Virgil has already killed, and kidnapped a female rock group that he keeps imprisoned in his basement to help satisfy his constant need for perverse amusement. Never satisfied, though, Virgil decides that he will once again try to fill the emptiness that exists within him, and so creates a trio of deformed, living dolls to systematically murder any and all people who have ever wronged him. What Virgil doesn't anticipate, though, is meeting his match and finding love, both of which come in the form of a woman who is even more evil and twisted than he is.

Officer Frank Dooley (John Candy) of the LAPD is framed for the theft of a television set by two corrupt detectives (who Dooley had actually caught robbing an appliance store). He is dismissed from the force, but escapes criminal punishment at his day in court. The next case in the courtroom features hapless defense attorney Norman Kane (Eugene Levy) attempting to defend a Charles Manson-type white supremacist leader named Lawrence Lupik (Glenn Withrow), who threatens him with death should Kane fail to keep him out of prison. A fearful Kane reveals his ineptitude and the death threat to the judge (Stacy Keach, Sr.), who tells Kane that he will give Lupik "A sentence so long he won't even remember his own name, let alone yours" so long as Kane agrees to find another line of work with a "lot less responsibility".
