RIP 24: Remembering Sid Haig

October 23, 2019

Sidney Eddie Mosesian (1939 - 2019) was an often underutilized character actor with the talent, charm, and sarcasm of a leading man. His towering stature, big, bold features, and infectious laugh made him a perfect fit for Jack Hill's exploitation films of the 70s. Sid would solidify a prosperous and steady career on screen but this character actor for hire would eventually step away from acting feeling typecast as just another dimwitted heavy. However, directors like Quentin Tarantino and Rob Zombie had other plans. At the age of 60, Sid would find a whole new act to his storied career.
