Character actor Charles Napier dies

Charles Napier has died at the age of 75

Charles Napier, the character actor whose granite jaw and toothy grin earned him tough-guy roles in movies like Rambo: First Blood Part 2, has died in California at 75.

Longtime friend Dennis Wilson told the Bakersfield Californian that Napier died on Wednesday at Bakersfield Memorial Hospital. No other details are being released.

Napier may be best known as the scheming intelligence officer facing Sylvester Stallone in the 1985 Rambo sequel.

He's also remembered as Good Ole Boys front man Tucker McElroy in the 1980 musical comedy film The Blues Brothers.

Napier was the judge in 1993's Philadelphia, and he was Lt Bill Boyle in 1991's Silence of the Lambs.
