RIP Billy Drago, 1945-2019

It amuses me to be coy and not reveal what’s coming up on the blog, but with news of actor Billy Drago’s death, I’ll go ahead and spoil that we’ll begin watching The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. next month. Among dozens of roles as evildoers in film and TV, notably in Charmed and Brian De Palma’s The Untouchables, Drago deserves to be remembered as the recurring villain John Bly in Brisco. I think that John Bly is among television’s all-time greatest bad guys, and I’ve been really looking forward to seeing him get under Brisco’s skin again. Our condolences to his family and friends.

  1. He’ll be missed. Always played a great villain.

  2. He was great at playing very weird, creepy villains.

  3. Matt Ceccato

    One of the better villain actors we have.

    P.S. Will this also be your son’s first exposure to John Astin?

  4. He played a great villain in Thd Delta Force 2 opposite Chuck Norris
