Giancarlo Giannini (born August 1, 1942) is an Oscar-nominated Italian actor and dubber.

Giannini was born La Spezia, Liguria, Italy. He studied at the "Accademia Nazionale" in Rome, and made his film debut in a small part in "Fango sulla metropoli" in 1965. He appeared in supporting roles in "Anzio" and "The Secret of Santa Vittoria", and starred in the original version of "Swept Away". In 1971, he appeared in "E le stelle stanno a guardare", a television adaptation of A. J. Cronin's novel, "The Stars Look Down".

In 1976, he starred in "Seven Beauties", for which he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor, which is unusual in that his performance was given entirely in Italian. He dubbed Jack Nicholson's voice in the Italian release of both "The Shining" and "Batman"; and is the official Italian dubber of Al Pacino. His fluency in English has brought him a number of featured roles in Hollywood productions, most notably as Inspector Pazzi in "Hannibal". He has also appeared in "A Walk in the Clouds" and "Man on Fire".

Giannini's best-known starring roles have been in films directed by Lina Wertmuller. In addition to "Swept Away" and "Seven Beauties", he also appeared in "The Seduction of Mimi", "Love and Anarchy", "A Night Full of Rain", and "Francesca e Nunziata".

He played the role of the protective father, Alberto Aragón, in "A Walk in the Clouds" in 1995.
