Michael Emmet Walsh (March 22, 1935 – March 19, 2024) was an American character actor who appeared in over 200 films and television series, including small but important supporting roles such as Earl Frank in Straight Time (1978), the Madman in The Jerk (1979), Captain Bryant in Blade Runner (1982), Harv in Critters (1986), and Walt Scheel in Christmas with the Kranks (2004). He starred as private detective Loren Visser in Blood Simple (1984), the Coen Brothers' first film, for which he won the Independent Spirit Award for Best Male Lead. His other numerous film appearances include Midnight Cowboy (1969), Little Big Man (1970), What's Up, Doc? (1972), Serpico (1973), The Gambler (1974), Bound for Glory (1976), Slap Shot (1977), Airport '77 (1977), Ordinary People (1980), Reds (1981), Silkwood (1983), Fletch (1985), Back to School (1986), Raising Arizona (1987), Romeo + Juliet (1996), My Best Friend's Wedding (1997), The Iron Giant (1999), Calvary (2014), and Knives Out (2019). Walsh said the following about himself, "My job is to come in and move the story along. The stars don’t do the exposition …So I come on with Redford or Newman or Dustin or somebody, and I throw the ball to them, and they throw it back, and it starts to become that tennis match, back and forth, and that’s what makes the dynamics of the whole thing. And I’m driving the movie forward. I just try to sublimate myself and get in there and do it... If you’re casting something, and you’ve got 12 problems; if they’ve got me, they only have 11 problems." Walsh died from a cardiac arrest in St. Albans, Vermont, on March 19, 2024, at the age of 88, three days before his 89th birthday.
