Like those of many character actors who work frequently, Chelcie Ross's name may not be a household one, but his face and distinctive voice are recognizable to many film and television viewers. The Oklahoma-born actor's career began after he served a tour of duty in Vietnam in the late 1960s. Arguably, Ross is best known for his portrayal of wealthy hotelier Conrad Hilton on the third season of AMC's acclaimed ad-firm drama "Mad Men." But many of his feature film roles and stage performances are notable as well, although perhaps much shorter on screen time in the case of his big screen work. Of his early onscreen appearances, some of Ross's most memorable were in the erotic thriller "Basic Instinct" and as a ruthlessly corrupt senator in the Steven Seagal action film "Above the Law," establishing him as a performer with a penchant for obnoxious, thorn-in-the-side antagonism. Cutting a considerable path through the sports-film sub-genre, Ross has appeared in the baseball comedy "Major League," the period basketball drama "Hoosiers," and the cult favorite "Rudy." In 1998, Ross portrayed an ill-fated sheriff in the byzantine stolen-loot thriller "A Simple Plan," kicking off a longstanding partnership with frenetic filmmaker Sam Raimi. He has appeared in such other Raimi-directed movies as "The Gift" and "Drag Me to Hell."
