I know what you’re thinking: “Woah, that dude was still alive?”

Yeah, I assumed he had died long ago too, but what a career. A Sam Peckinpah regular, R. G. Armstrong had a familiar, grizzled face and appeared in tons of TV shows, westerns, action films, and quite a few horror roles beginning in the mid-1950s.

“Predator. The only movie in which schwarzenegger did a halfway decent acting job.”

The one role I always remember most was Armstrong guest-starring in an episode of “The Westerner,” which starred Brian Keith. Armstrong thinks Keith is the one who murdered a schoolmarm, and he and his buddies decide to lynch him. When, at the last minute, the real guilty party is revealed, Armstrong sheepishly smiles and puts his hand out to Keith and apologizes. Keith turns to him and then starts beating the hell out of him!

Yes, perfect due to the limited acting requirements. How hard can it be to act mechanical and emotionless, while rarely speaking at all?
