Date of Birth : Mar 22nd 1935
Walsh is a remarkably busy movie character actor of the 20th and 21st centuries. Beginning with the film Alice’s Restaurant in 1969, Walsh has stayed busy, often appearing in six movies per year. Shambling and classically rumpled, he is frequently cast as a corrupt cop, a shady neer-do-well or a lovable redneck of sorts. His best-known role may be that of Bryant, the cynical head cop who strong-arms Harrison Ford in the sci-fi classic Blade Runner (1982). His other films include Blood Simple (1984), Twilight (1998, starring Paul Newman and Susan Sarandon), Snow Dogs (2002, with Cuba Gooding, Jr) and Chasing 3000 (2008).
