Charles Napier

Lively character actor who usually plays hard-ass military types and menacing bad guys. Charles Napier's roles have changed little since his debut in Russ Meyer's Cherry, Harry & Raquel! (1970). Napier went on appearing in other Meyer movies, including the homicidal Harry Sledge in Supervixens (1975) and also became a regular playing smaller roles for Jonathan Demme. His granite-like jaw and wide, gate-like grin have contributed to his many memorable portrayals of tough guys, notably the scheming intelligence officer up against Sylvester Stallone in Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985) and the short-tempered front man of the Good Ole Boys in The Blues Brothers (1980), where he delivers the masterful 'corn on the cob' line.
