Ubiquitous character actors were often known by sight, if not by name, but Gary Grubbs' voice was as much his calling card as his ability to undertake various performing challenges. Perfectly able to depict characters on opposite ends of the social register, his unaffected Mississippi drawl and natural acting skill made him just as persuasive playing attorneys in productions like the TV movie "The Burning Bed" (NBC, 1984) and, perhaps most famously, "JFK" (1991), at the same time he was inhabiting good 'ole boy roles in films like "Ray" (2004). Casting directors also found the tall and handsome actor an excellent choice to portray authority figures, so Grubbs found himself wearing the uniforms of everything from county sheriffs to high-ranking military men. While the majority of his parts were on the small screen, Grubbs also made his mark in such notable motion pictures as "In the Electric Mist" (2009), "The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call - New Orleans" (2009), "Battleship" (2012), and "Django Unchained" (2012). Grubbs' extensive résumé in both mediums was a testament to his skillset and his work in a number of high-profile movies later in his career, all of which helped viewers put a face to that unmistakable voice.
