Despite appearing in television and motion pictures since the early 1960s, actor Sid Haig would eventually carve his niche via roles in blaxploitation and horror films in the ensuing decades. Born in Fresno, California, Haig studied acting via drama class in high school, and later, at the Pasadena Playhouse. After relocating to Hollywood to pursue an acting career, he began landing small roles in some of the biggest television programs of the 1960s ("The Untouchables," "Batman," "Star Trek," etc.). By the 1970s, he would regularly land roles in some of the decade's most renowned blaxploitation flicks ("Coffy," "Foxy Brown," etc.), and would continue securing roles in popular television shows of the 1980s and 1990s ("Fantasy Island," "The Fall Guy," "MacGyver," etc.). But by the early 21st century, Haig had developed a union with rocker-turned-director Rob Zombie, which would result in starring roles (as a homicidal clown, Captain Spaulding) in both "House of 1000 Corpses" and "The Devil's Rejects." These two roles would bring Haig a pair of wins at the Fangoria Chainsaw Awards in 2004 and 2006.
