Bo Hopkins

Actor

Born - 26 February 1938, Greenville, South Carolina, USA
Died - 28 May 2022

Rangy, laconic, small-featured American actor with sandy, curly hair, often seen as menacing characters from the southern or southwestern states. After a film debut at 30 following TV experience, he soon became a familiar lean, stetsoned, crunch-faced figure in dozens of westerns and backwoods or small-town action films, often as braggarts bullying the hero or heroine. A James Dean figure gone to the bad, his many films included Dayton's Devils (1968), The Wild Bunch (1969), Monte Walsh (1970), The Culpepper Cattle Co (1972), The Getaway (1972), American Graffiti (1973), White Lightning (1973), The Day of the Locust (1974), Posse (1975), A Small Town in Texas (1976), Midnight Express (1978), More American Graffiti (1979), Sweet Sixteen (1981), Mutant (1983), What Comes Around (1985), Trapper County War (1988), Big Bad John (1989), Black Creek (1991), The Ballad of Little Jo (1993), Riders in the Storm (1995), U Turn (1997), Vice (2000), Cowboy Up (2001), Shade (2003), Open Window (2006), A Little Christmas Business (2013), The Boys at the Bar (2016) and Hillbilly Elegy (2020), his last. He died from a heart attack.
