Howdy Manco!!

Max Showalter first showed up in 1949, in the film, Always Leave Them Laughing. He went on to appear in many films like Niagara, Bus Stop and the Academy Award winning, Elmer Gantry, with Burt Lancaster. He also appeared on many of the t.v. series that were popular during the 50's-60's, like Kojak, The Twilight Zone, The Doris Day Show, Perry Mason etc. He was the original Ward Cleaver in the pilot for the t.v. series, Leave It To Beaver, but was replaced by Hugh Beaumont in the series.

Al Ruscio has appeared in several films of note, like Any Which Way You Can with Clint Eastwood, Jagged Edge with Glenn Close and The Godfather III with Al Pacino. He has also guest starred on t.v. series from the 50's-80's, including the Dick Powell, Zane Grey Theater, The Fall Guy, Beverly Hills 90210, and dozens of others. He makes a very convincing Mafia member.

Robert Tessier was a large, shaven headed villain, in just about every film or t.v. show, he appeared in. He got his start doing motortcycle stunts and then started taking on roles like a prisoner in The Longest Yard, Robert Shaw's bodyguard in The Deep and a bare knuckle brawler in Hard Times. He also appeared on many of the action t.v. shows, like Kung Fu, Starsky And Hutch, The Dukes Of Hazzard, The Fall Guy etc. You may not be able to place the name, but you will never forget his face. He was a VERY convincing villain.

Stacy Keach has appeared in several good films, like The New Centurions, Escape From L.A., Grey Lady Down and Jesus Of Nazareth as Barabas. He has also appeared in a couple of good westerns, like The Long Riders, with his brother James , The film, Doc, in which he played Doc Holliday and Desolation Canyon, with Bruce Dern. He will probably be best remembered for his role of the private detective Mike Hammer in the t.v. series, Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer, which was a hit, until he was arrested for possession of cocaine in London's Heathrow airport and served 6 months in a British prison. He picked up right where he left off in the NEW series, The Return Of Mike Hammer and has continued with his career, without missing a beat. An excellent actor, who makes every role he's involved in, interesting.
