Veteran actor Scott Wilson has died at the age of 76.

Born in Thomasville, Georgia, Wilson began his career as a murder suspect in In the Heat of the Night in 1967. In the same year he appeared as another murder suspect, Richard Hickock, in the adaptation of Truman Capote's In Cold Blood.

Wilson would go on to appear in over 70 films and television shows, often gravitating to westerns or military roles. Some of Wilson's other film roles included The Great Gatsby (1974), The Ninth Configuration, The Right Stuff, Judge Dredd, Dead Man Walking, G.I. Jane, The Way of the Gun, Monster (2003), The Host (2006), and Hostiles.

Wilson's television roles included The X-Files, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (as Sam Braun, casino owner and father of Catherine Willows), Law & Order, The OA, and The Walking Dead as Hershel Greene.

Wilson had been married since 1977 but had no children. He died on October 6, 2018, from Leukemia.

Didn't even know he had leukemia :( I obviously know of him from The Walking Dead, but I'm looking at his filmography and I'm seeing he was in a lot of films I've seen. I'm glad he had a chance to had such a showcase role near the end of his career. He had a brief role on Season 1 of Bosch, and it was very pleasant seeing him. Seemed like a real affable, down-to-earth guy.

I knew him mostly from CSI. I never watched the other spin-offs, but I watched pretty much every episode of the main series.

I didn't even realize that was him in The Host. I'll have to go back and watch that for Halloween.

I never got into any of the CSI's other than scattered episodes here and there, but I saw The Host recently and I think I got back to the scene thinking "is that him?".

Originally the producers wanted to get Paul Neuman and Steve McQueen to play the accused killers but Neuman decided to star in Cool Hand Luke and Hombre while McQueen made Bullitt and The Thomas Crown Affair. Sidney Poitier personally recommended Wilson for his role after working with him in In the Heat of the Night. Wilson didn't find out about that until after the production.

Damn. RIP Mr. Wilson. The first thing I remembered seeing him in was Macon County Line with another great character actor, Jesse Vint. I remember Max Baer Jr.(Jethro from The Beverly Hillbillies) played a deputy sheriff. Wilson and Vint played brothers who ended up getting on his bad side. Plus he was Hershel. He's gonna be missed.

He had announced the cancer was back about two weeks ago. Didn't even give him a break. :(

He was great in Poltergeist.

Also in an episode of The Jeffersons as a white supremacist. He has a heart attack and George ends up using CPR to save him. "Should have let me die." - cold blooded, man. Powerful episode.

R.I.P. I saw Poltergeist for the first time a few days ago, coincidentally. He was a welcome sight even though his character is a grade-A sleazoid.

He was so good at playing authority figures. I also really like him in Wall Street and Mulholland Drive.
