Trivia that mentions this person:
Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark [1981]
  • Steven Spielberg originally envisioned Giancarlo Giannini for the role of Dr. Rene Belloq and then considered French actor/singer [?] Jacques Dutronc (who, unfortunately, doesn't speak a word of English) before deciding on Paul Freeman.
    Quantum of Solace [2008]
  • Giancarlo Giannini as double agent Rene Mathis from Casino Royale returns in this movie. This is the second EON Productions official series [James Bond] movie to feature the James Bond ally character of Rene Mathis. The Mathis character appeared in the original Ian Fleming novel but not film of From Russia with Love and variations of this character's name have appeared in "[Climax!:] {Casino Royale (#1.3)}" (1954) (as Valerie Mathis) and Casino Royale (as Inspector Mathis). As the character dies in the film, this is probably the last time in the series that Mathis will be seen.
    Toys [1992]
  • The "electric jacket" worn by Robin Williams was created by the Italian actor Giancarlo Giannini.
