    How sad. His characters were indeed memorable. I think the ones that stick out the most in my mind are his appearances in "Supernatural," Mysterious Skin, and "The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr." He was great at playing the villain or being just plain creepy.

    I remember him being a great villiain in almost everything he was a part of. He always played the bad guy but he did it well.

    Ditto. The first characters I thought of when I read the subject line were Frank Nitti and this recurring nightmare demon on Charmed. He kicked ass as a bad guy.

    RIP, Bad Man...

    Aww, I loved this guy. Among his roles he had a neat turn in the Takashi Miike's haunting and disturbing Masters of Horror episode Imprint. Hell, I thought even his name "Billy Drago" was cool. I don't think he ever arose from being a B-actor but I've always loved B-movies, especially growing up, so that doesn't diminish him in my book.
