American supporting actor usually to be found in minor but well-drawn roles in westerns, as lawmen in the pay of the town boss, or shadowy figures who never quite met your gaze. Reliability was not a notable asset of this actor's characters, only of his performances in scores of films throughout the 1950s, after which, with the demise of the co-feature, his movie output rapidly dwindled. In more recent times, he lectured on communicating arts, as well as forming a company to promote educational records. Had eight children. Died from cancer.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Character Actors: an Illustrated Directory).

Mattie Ross: Where would I find this Rooster?
Sheriff: He'll be at the federal court this afternoon, he's bringing in a load of prisoners from the territories.
Crowley: [to Diana about John] Whatever he's looking for he won't find it in Rio.
