A quick question

Recently I watched Sergio Martino's Arizona si scatenò... e li fece fuori tutti in which Gildo Di Marco, who plays Garullo the pimp in The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, has a more prominent role as a character nicknamed Filthy Bottle.

He also seems at times to have a stutter or tic, just like Garullo. So, I'm wondering: is this just a coincidence, that the one actor happened to have two roles with this trait, or was it something he specialised in, or really had himself? The last possibility would seem odd, but not impossible in the crazy world of Italian genre cinema we all know and love.

Looking at Gildo Di Marco's credits, I was also surprised to discover he plays the hapless postman in Four Flies on Grey Velvet, though the absence of a good print of it makes it hard to see what he's saying there...
