MINI BIO:

Burly, surly-looking and in the 'Ernest Borgnine tradition', Claude Akins had a late start in films and almost inevitably found himself cast as villains. Equally inevitably, it seemed, his later career brought better and more sympathetic roles, and his cheerful grin was also to be seen in leading roles in TV series.
