Sour-faced, croaking-voiced, dark-complexioned, pale-eyed American character actor with receding dark hair, a latecomer to films, but very busy once he got started, often in films by or starring Clint Eastwood. After an isolated debut in The Fat Black Pussycat (1963), however, it was nearly a decade later that his apologetic features began to be seen regularly in movies: The Todd Killings (1970), Bad Company (1972), High Plains Drifter (1972), Dillinger (1973), Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974), Lucky Lady (1975), The Return of a Man Called Horse (1976), Every Which Way But Loose (1978), Bronco Billy (1980), Any Which Way You Can (1980), I, the Jury (1981), 10 to Midnight (1983), Maximum Security (1984), Tango & Cash (1989), The Lawnmower Man (1992), Maverick (1994), Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (1997), The Way of the Gun (2000), Mind Games (2003), Down in the Valley (2004), Zombies (2006), The Butcher (2009), Retreat! (2012), High and Outside (2015), his last, and many more. The father of 10 children, including actress Juliette Lewis, he died from a heart attack.
