Unknown Actor Appreciation: Billy Drago

Actor: Billy Drago
Age: 63
You know him from: Pale Rider, The Untouchables, Guncrazy, The Adventures of Brisco County Jr, The Hills Have Eyes (2006)

Few actors creep me out to the extent Billy Drago does. His look, his voice, and his actions in film combine in some odd way to keep me on edge. He's just... off. Odd. Unsettling. For no better example, watch the scene in The Untouchables where Drago's character, Frank Nitti, tells Eliot Ness, "...your friend died screaming like a stuck Irish pig." It's downright creepy.
