Born in Rome, Colizzi started his career on stage and in 1960 he got his first major role, playing the title role in a badly received television adaptation of Tom Jones.[2][3] His career became more intense between the 1970s and the early 1980s, when he starred in a number of successful TV-series and genre films.[2][3] Since the 1980s Colizzi focused his activities on voice acting.[2][3]

Colizzi was also a very successful voice-over artist. He regularly dubbed over the voices of Christopher Reeve, Jack Nicholson, James Caan, Richard Dreyfuss, Omar Sharif and Franco Nero. He also dubbed Michael Douglas (a role which he shared with Oreste Rizzini) in a select number of his films. Some of Colizzi's most popular dubbing contributions include Superman in the Italian dub of the first three films of the Superman film series until being replaced by Sergio Di Stefano in the fourth film. He also dubbed Sonny Corleone in The Godfather and Hooper in Jaws.[4]

Personal life

From his relationship with ex-wife Manuela Andrei, Colizzi is the father of voice actress Chiara Colizzi. He retired in 2015.
