James Gammon


Born - 20 April 1940, Newman, Illinois, USA
Died - 17 July 2010

Mournfully-moustached, light-haired, sleepy-eyed, gravel-voiced character actor, one of the few in modern times to make his home in westerns and also memorable as Don Johnson's father in the TV series Nash Bridges. After early work as a TV cameraman and second-unit director, he moved into acting and quickly became an invaluable player. Just a few of his many films were: Cool Hand Luke (1967), A Man Called Horse (1969), Macho Callahan (1970), Macon County Line (1974), The Greatest (1977), Any Which Way You Can (1980), Silverado (1985), Ironweed (1988), Major League (1989), Crisscross (1992), Wyatt Earp (1994), The Hi-Lo Country (1998), The Cell (2000), Cold Mountain (2003), Silver City (2004), Outlaw Trail: The Treasure of Butch Cassidy (2006), Appaloosa (2008), In the Electric Mist (2009) and The New Daughter (2010), his last. He died from cancer of the liver and adrenalin glands.
