For most of his four-decade career in film and television, Scott Wilson essayed men on the brink of life-changing choices. He rose to fame as the amoral drifter Dick Hickcok in Richard Brooks' "In Cold Blood" (1967) and would play troubled, even dangerous roles in "The Grissom Gang" (1971), "The Great Gatsby" (1974) and "The Ninth Configuration" (1980). As Wilson grew older, his characters softened a bit; there was still a rough edge to them, like the reclusive Judd Travers in "Shiloh" (1996), but he also played thoughtful fathers in "Junebug" (2003) and a mobster-turned-long-lost father on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (CBS, 2000- ). Though rarely the lead, Wilson's history of solid support in numerous quality films made him one of the most dependable character actors in the film industry.
