      Scott Wilson

      Scott Wilson

      Highest Rated: 95% Dead Man Walking (1995)

      Lowest Rated: 11% Big Stan (2007)

      Birthday: Mar 29, 1942

      Birthplace: Atlanta, Georgia, USA

      For most of his four-decade career in film and television, Scott Wilson essayed men on the brink of life-changing choices. He rose to fame as the amoral drifter Dick Hickcok in Richard Brooks' "In Cold Blood" (1967) and would play troubled, even dangerous roles in "The Grissom Gang" (1971), "The Great Gatsby" (1974) and "The Ninth Configuration" (1980). As Wilson grew older, his characters softened a bit; there was still a rough edge to them, like the reclusive Judd Travers in "Shiloh" (1996), but he also played a thoughtful father in "Junebug" (2003) and a mobster-turned-long-lost father on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (CBS, 2000-2015) before playing complicated patriarch Hershel Greene on the cable hit "The Walking Dead" (AMC 2010- ). Though rarely the lead, Wilson's history of solid support in numerous quality films made him one of the most dependable character actors in the film industry. Scott Wilson died of leukemia on October 6, 2018 at the age of 76.
