    We all know he played Tuco, the guy who said the famous words "When you have to shoot, shoot, don't talk".

    But did you also know he played Mr. Freeze on the old Batman TV show? (Not as well known as the Otto Preminger version of Mr. Freeze)

    hmmm... I don't remember any Freeze guy on Batman. I can't say I've watched every episode, but I've been forced to see enough (thanks Dad!).

    Looking at that picture, I'd probably laugh at it these days.

    Shit! Now I know this guy!

    He's played in quite a lot.

    I remember him mostly from the movie Tough Guys (in the 80s).

    The Good the Bad and the Ugly was probably his most famous movie. He was in the Magnificent Seven, The Godfather Part 3(?), and many many other movies and TV shows.

    I love that old batman show. corny as all hell, but that was what made it good. It was fun, not dark and gloomy like the recent movies.
