Some guys just have the villain’s look. Robert Davi, Dennis Farina, Henry Silva and Billy Drago are among them. Ed Begley Sr., not Jr.
Billy Drago made a great heavy. He had the right name for a bad guy. Benicio del Toro dead eyes, the perpetually sweaty look of a killer.
I am digging through my archives to figure out which film I interviewed him about, because I ALWAYS set aside profile times for the great heavies.
Maybe “Mysterious Skin,” “The Hills Have Eyes” or “Mad Dog Time.”
Drago gave us all the creeps in all the best ways.
