    John Nicholas Cassavetes (Greek: Ιωάννης Νικόλαος Κασσαβέτης, Ioannis Nikolaos Kassavetis; December 9, 1929 – February 3, 1989) was an American actor, film director and screenwriter. Cassavetes was a pioneer of American independent film, by writing and directing over a dozen movies, some of which he partially self-financed, which pioneered the use of improvisation and a realistic cinéma vérité style.

Nick Cassavetes is his son.
