Jack Elam - Worked with him on "BIG BAD JOHN" in 1999. We were at Ryder's Sound Shooting ADR and later mixing the show and he and Jimmy Dean where there watching the process. Was very nice to meet him as I'm a Huge Western fan and grew up watching him in the movies as a kid!

Jack Elam (1920–2003) - Colorful American character actor equally adept at vicious killers or grizzled sidekicks. He became one of the most memorable supporting players in Hollywood, thanks not only to his near-demented screen persona but also to an out-of-kilter left eye, sightless from a childhood fight. He appeared with great aplomb in Westerns and gangster films alike, and in later years played to wonderful effect in comedic roles.
