Date of Birth : May 2nd 1932

American character actor, perhaps best known for his portrayal of homosexual assassin Mr. Wint in the 1971 James Bond film Diamonds Are Forever. He is also the father of actor Crispin Glover.

Glover began with numerous appearances in TV shows including My Favorite Martian (1963), Perry Mason (The Case of the Golden Girls (1965)), The Rat Patrol (1966), Hawk (1966), and The Mod Squad (1968). His performance alongside Putter Smith, as two hit men trying to eliminate Sean Connery in the James Bond adventure Diamonds Are Forever (1971), was equally chilling and humorous, stamping Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd as two of the most popular villains of the entire 007 series.

Glover was a redneck thug harassing well meaning teens in the drama Bless the Beasts & Children (1971), appeared in Black Gunn (1972) and One Little Indian (1973), was leaning on hustler James Coburn to repay his debts in Hard Times (1973), and contributed another icy performance as Duffy in Chinatown (1974). Glover also appeared as deputy Grady Coker in the controversial vigilante film Walking Tall (1973), and its sequel Walking Tall Part II (1975). He remained busy through the 1980s and 1990s with more guest spots on shows including T.J. Hooker (1982), The Dukes of Hazzard (1979), CHiPs (1978), and The A-Team (1983), and appeared in the films Killcrazy (1989), Popcorn (1991) and Warlock: The Armageddon (1993). More recently, he was interviewed by Chris Aable on Hollywood Today (1995) and appeared in the films Night of the Scarecrow (1995), Die Hard Dracula (1998) and Ghost World (2001).
