Frank Doubleday


Thin, intense, antsy and often unnerving character actor Frank Doubleday usually portrayed creepy villains in both movies and TV shows, alike, from the mid-70s up until the early 90s. Doubleday made his film debut as an aggressive switchblade-wielding punk thug in the hilariously raunchy comedy The First Nudie Musical (1976). Doubleday's lean, hollow-eyed, sunken-cheeked face, closely cropped light blonde hair, skinny limbs and slim build gave him a striking and potent screen presence that was put to especially effective use in two pictures for director John Carpenter: he's genuinely scary as the vicious street gang leader who kills little girl Kim Richards in cold blood in the terrific urban action classic Assault on Precinct 13 (1976) and was likewise memorably freaky as Isaac Hayes' ghoulish flunky "Romero" in the excellent futuristic sci-fi cult favorite Escape from New York (1981). Doubleday's other noteworthy parts are a mob kingpin's conceited jerk son in Avenging Angel (1985),
