Who Plays Anton Mogart On Moon Knight?

Contains spoilers for "Moon Knight" Season 1, Episode 3

"Star Wars" and "Dune" actor Oscar Isaac is the latest star to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, playing the titular troubled vigilante in the "Moon Knight" series on Disney+. The show follows Steven Grant, who discovers that he has dissociative identity disorder and that one of his alternate personalities is a former mercenary named Marc Spector. The suave brawler works for the Egyptian moon god Khonshu (F. Murray Abraham) after the deity saved his life. The naive giftshop worker is pulled into an international adventure where he goes up against a bizarre cult led by Arthur Harrow (Ethan Hawke) — who "judges" people using the power of another ancient Egyptian god, Ammit.

Harrow's whole plan is to resurrect Ammit so she can reshape the world by judging the entire population and killing those who might turn evil in the future. Obviously, this gets into some murky territory — which is why Moon Knight and Khonshu are desperate to stop Harrow. But Harrow isn't the only villain Moon Knight meets in the series — his quest also leads him to Anton Mogart in Episode 3. The black market collector is in possession of a sarcophagus that could lead the hero to Ammit's tomb before Harrow gets there.

Luckily, Layla (May Calamawy) already knows Anton from her time working in Madripoor, a subtle nod to "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier." After the dynamic duo heads over to the collector's estate, it isn't long before a fight breaks out. Here's who plays Anton Mogart in "Moon Knight."

The late Gaspard Ulliel plays Anton Mogart

The late French actor Gaspard Ulliel plays Anton Mogart in "Moon Knight," although it looks like the actor wasn't meant to return for an ongoing role in the MCU since Marc seemingly kills the villain at the end of the fight on the latter's estate. Marc battles all of Mogart's goons before flinging one of his crescent-shaped knives into the black market collector's back. Unfortunately, Ulliel tragically died in a skiing accident in January 2022 at age 37.

The star had a minor role in the 2001 action-horror "Brotherhood of the Wolf" as Louis, but he's best known for playing a young version of Anthony Hopkins' Hannibal Lecter in 2007's "Hannibal Rising" alongside Rhys Ifans and Gong Li.

Comic book readers will know that Mogart is also known as Midnight Man, a thief who steals priceless art and antiques in the middle of the night while dressed in a completely black costume — complete with a cape, of course. The show doesn't put Ulliel's Mogart in a black suit, but his interest in antiques is a key part of Episode 3 and pushes Moon Knight further on his quest to stop Arthur Harrow.
