Menacingly handsome American actor Scott Wilson was chosen for his first important film role in In Cold Blood (1967) because of his chilling resemblance to real-life murderer Dick Hickok. In Cold Blood helped to revitalize the career of Wilson's costar Robert Blake, but Wilson found himself typecast as sociopaths for the next few years. In The Great Gatsby (1974), for example, Wilson portrays the cuckolded garage owner who ends up shooting Gatsby (Robert Redford) in the latter's expensive swimming pool. Since then, Scott Wilson has alternated between likeable and hissable in such films as The Right Stuff (1981), The Aviator (1984) and On the Line (1987).
