That Guy Actor of the Week: Ed Ross

This is on Ed Ross from IMDB

Rough’n’tumble character actor Ed O’Ross was born as Ed Oross on July 4, 1946 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was an alter boy as a kid and graduated from Munhall High in 1964. Following graduation O’Ross attended both Point Park College and Carnegie Tech. He was an amateur Golden Gloves boxing champion and minor league baseball player prior to embarking on an acting career

You guys probably recognize his face but you just wouldn’t know him by name.  Ross has the tough look where he always seems to look like a bad guy.  Granted he usually plays bad guys so that seems to work well.

He’s got 82 titles to his name and I particularly liked him in Red Heat and Another 48 hours.  Unfortunately I couldn’t find a clip of Ross but hopefully you recognize him.

  1. I love Ed in everything I’ve seen him in. The Hidden in particular is one of my favorites.

    I also was recently watching Dick Tracy when I realized that he was the actor under all the makeup that played Flattop’s sidekick.
