Nicholas Worth (September 4, 1937 - May 7, 2007) was an American character actor who portrayed General Marzaq and Premier Romanov in Westwood Studios' Command & Conquer series of games, Emperor: Battle for Dune, and also voice-acted as Colonel Bulba/Mr. Jones in Freedom Fighters. He also took up several smaller roles in sci-fi programs like Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. His outrageously hammy performance as the tormented lunatic killer in the low-budget horror film Don't Answer the Phone! (1980) has garnered praise from some cult film fans.

He was a large, bulky, balding (later bald) man with a wide mouth and a powerful bass voice.

Nicholas is best known for his stellar performance as Bruno in the 1982s Swamp Thing which is a big screen version of the comic book Swamp Thing. Famed horror director Wes Craven said working with Nicholas in Swamp Thing was a highlight of his career.

He also had minor roles as henchmen, notably as Thug #1 in The Naked Gun, Cup Breaker in No Way Out, Ryles and Hower in two episodes of Knight Rider and as one of Larry Drake's goons named Pauly in Darkman and also appeared in Plughead Rewired: Circuitry Man II.

Worth appeared on a 1991 episode of the TV series Night Court as Mr Birnbach.

Worth was a dedicated bodybuilder and powerlifter. He died of heart failure.

He was a born-again Christian.
