Former Hell’s Angel and actor from the tv series Oz, Chuck Zito, appeared on Howard Stern’s “Wrap Up Show” last week and let us know that he will star alongside Mickey Rourke in the movie about Richard Kuklinsksi, the Mafia hitman who killed somewhere in the neighborhood of 200 people.
Zito will play Roy DeMeo, a high ranking member of the Gambino crime family in New York City. DeMeo was in charge of a crew full of car thieves, drug dealers and murderers. It is estimated his crew was responsible for somewhere between 75 and 200 murders in the 1970’s and 80’s. Kuklinski, also known as The Ice Man, was DeMeo’s favorite enforcer.
Zito will also be a stunt coordinator and producer for the movie.
Zito was a one-time bodyguard for Jean-Claude Van Damme (whose ass he later kicked in a New York City strip bar), Sylvester Stallone and Mickey Rourke.
