Armand Anthony Assante, Jr. (born October 4, 1949) is an American actor. Armand Assante was born in New York City, and raised in Cornwall, New York, the son of Armand Anthony Assante, Sr., a painter and artist, and Katherine (née Healy), a music teacher and poet. His father was Sicilian American, his mother was Irish American, and he was raised in a devoutly Roman Catholic family. Assante was married to Karen McArn from 1982 to 1994, and has two daughters, Anya and Alesandra.

A role that brought him greater attention came in 1980's Private Benjamin as a handsome Frenchman who becomes the love interest of a U.S. soldier played by Goldie Hawn.
Assante's somewhat sinister look has made him a popular choice for tough-guy heroes, as in his starring role as private eye Mike Hammer in the film I, the Jury (1982) or as Mafia gangsters such as Michael Moretti in Sidney Sheldon's Rage of Angels. He has also played the famous military leader Napoleon Bonaparte in the (1987) TV mini-series Napoleon and Josephine: A Love Story. He portrayed the notorious Bugsy Siegel in a comedy, Sidney Lumet's Q & A (1990), Neil Simon's The Marrying Man (1991), another mobster in Hoffa (1992) starring Jack Nicholson, and crime kingpin John Gotti in the 1996 made-for-television biopic Gotti, for which he won his Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie.
