Character actor Wesley Addy made his film debut in First Legion (1951). Often cast in cold, intimidating roles, Addy was a member in good standing of director Robert Aldrich's informal stock company. The actor was given plenty of elbow room in his supporting parts in Aldrich's Kiss Me Deadly (1955) and The Big Knife (1955), and had a memorable pre-credits bit as a migraine-prone movie producer ("Boy oh boy oh boy oh boy") in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962). Addy married actress Celeste Holm in 1961.
