George Memmoli

George Memmoli (August 3, 1938 – May 20, 1985) was an American actor. Memmoli was a friend and frequent collaborator of director Martin Scorsese, appearing in Mean Streets as a pool hall owner (1973) and New York, New York (1977), and contributing to a documentary focused on a mutual friend of Scorsese's and Memmoli's, American Boy: A Profile of Steven Prince (1978). He is also known for his portrayal of the engineer Earl during the first season of the sitcom Hello, Larry, and was a founding member of the improv comedy troupe Ace Trucking Company.

Memmoli also played Philbin in Brian De Palma's Phantom of the Paradise (1974) and Jenkins in Scorsese collaborator Paul Schrader's Blue Collar (1978), and he had a small but memorable role in Rocky (1976) as the ice rink worker who, while sporadically counting down, allows Rocky and Adrian their rushed first date alone on the ice after closing. On the set of Blue Collar, co-star Richard Pryor hit Memmoli's head with a chair and fractured his skull. As a result, Memmoli filed a $1 million lawsuit against Pryor.

Memmoli's last TV appearance was as Paul "the Wall" Srignoli in the Hill Street Blues episode "The Rise and Fall of Paul the Wall," which aired on December 6, 1984. His final screen appearance was in the 1985 film The Sure Thing, as Uncle Nunzi.

Memmoli died in 1985 from injuries sustained in an accident involving a stunt car during the filming of "The Farmer" in 1976 or 1977.
