Stanton's agent John S Kelly said the actor died on Friday afternoon at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles. Mr Kelly said Stanton died of natural causes, but gave no further details.
The shambling, craggy-face performer had a decades-long career that included memorable turns in Alien, 'Paris, Texas, Cool Hand Luke and many other films and TV shows.
Stanton was also almost always cast as a crook, a codger, an eccentric or a loser.

Recently he reunited with his frequent collaborator David Lynch in Showtime's Twin Peaks: The Return, and stars with Lynch in the upcoming film Lucky.
