John P Ryan

29 July 1936 to 20 March 2007

A redoubtable character actor of fearsome mien, Ryan added a menacing presence - even when playing good guys - from the 1970s on. His films include Five Easy Pieces (1970), The Cotton Club (1984), Runaway Train (1985) and Bound (1996). He was also a frequent guest star in many popular TV dramas.
