Jorge Raúl Porcel de Peralta (September 7, 1936 – May 16, 2006) was a comedy actor and television host from Argentina. He was nicknamed El Gordo de América (America's Fat Guy). Porcel was often considered, along with Alberto Olmedo, one of Argentina's greatest comic actors of the twentieth century. Porcel made a total of 49 movies, starting with 1962's Disloque en Mar del Plata, and ending with Carlito's Way (1993). Many of these 49 movies were collaborations with Olmedo. Among the movies they did together was 1986's Rambito y Rambón: Primera Misión. (Little Rambo and Big Rambo: First Mission) Many of Porcel and Olmedo's movies in the 1970s and 1980s were adult-oriented comedies. Conservative Argentine authorities rated these movies as PM-18 (age 18 and above), except for some movies planned for family audiences, which had "tamer" content. These movies are considered to be the pinnacle of Argentina's sexploitation movie genre. Most of these movies were directed by Gerardo Sofovich or his brother Hugo. Porcel virtually stopped appearing in these movies after the accidental death of Olmedo, which left him clinically depressed. Porcel had many TV hit shows as well, including Operación
