    Default Billy Drago, actor in 1987 gangster movie 'The Untouchables,' dies at 73

    This guy was a dead ringer for someone in high school that I really hated. That being said, RIP, Billy!

    Billy Drago, best known for his role as Al Capone's henchman in the 1987 gangster flick "The Untouchables," has died at 73, according to multiple news reports.
    The actor died Monday in Los Angeles, according to The Hollywood Reporter and People. Variety reports he suffered from complications from a stroke. USA TODAY has reached out to a representative for comment.
    A Kansas native born in 1945, Drago had over 100 TV and film credits, including "Charmed," "The X-Files" and the Clint Eastwood western "Pale Rider." In 2001, he was featured in Michael Jackson's music video for "You Rock My World."
    Actress Laura Ortiz, who starred alongside Drago in the 2006 horror remake "The Hills Have Eyes," posted a tribute to the late actor on Instagram Wednesday night.
    "Very saddened to hear the news of Billy Drago passing," she captioned a photo of the two from the "Hills Have Eyes" set. "He was such an amazing character both on and off the screen. When we were in Morocco filming he’d go off on adventures and no one knew where he was or how to reach him but he’d always show up on time for work with amazing stories of getting lost in the desert and the locals he met and stayed with. Lucky to have worked with you on my first job."

    He had the right voice for those roles, too.
