George Dickerson


Born - 25 July 1933, Topeka, Kansas, USA
Died - 10 January 2015

Rather sad-looking American character actor with dark brown receding hair and a way of talking from the side of his mouth. A writer who turned to acting in his forties, he was seen on TV from the mid 1970s, notably in the long-running Hill Street Blues as Commander Swanson. He made a late film debut, appropriately as an undertaker, in Cutter's Way (1981) and was subsequently seen in Jinxed! (1982), Psycho II (1983), The Star Chamber (1984), Blue Velvet (1986), No Mercy (1986), Death Wish 4: The Crackdown (1987), After Dark, My Sweet (1990), Death Warrant (1990), Vertical City (1995), The Broken Giant (1998) and A Stranger in the Kingdom (1999), his last.
