Fat Ass was an un-named and overweight man that arrived at Shawshank Prison at the same time and day that Andy Dufrense did. He is portrayed by Frank Medrano.


Fat Ass' first notable appearance is as he exits the bus and is processed at Shawshank. During his first night, suddenly realising the harsh truth of Shawshank, he began to cry, speaking of how he did not belong in prison and wanted his mother. It is at this point that Captain Hadley strikes him in the center of the stomach and violently beats him with his baton. Fat Ass is then taken to the infirmary; however, there are no doctors on duty and he is left there overnight. He dies from his wounds by the time morning arrives. His death became a demonstration and example of Hadley's fierce brutality.
