->''"For tropers, the day Raul Julia got an article in TVTropes was the most important day of TVTropes' history. [[ButForMeItWasTuesday But for him... it was Tuesday]]."''

'''Raul Rafael Julia y Arcelay''' (1940-1994) was a Puerto Rican actor who gained fame through his performances on- and off-Broadway. Nowadays, you'll most likely recognize him from his role as Gomez Addams in the [[Film/TheAddamsFamily two film adaptations]] of ''Series/TheAddamsFamily''. Indie film lovers will probably know him as Valentine from ''KissOfTheSpiderWoman''. He was posthumously given several awards for his performance as Chico Mendes in the MadeForTVMovie ''The Burning Season''.

He was also the lead in ''OverdrawnAtTheMemoryBank'', but don't hold it against him - he wanted to help support public broadcasting.

On stage, he was a regular with the New York Shakespeare Festival, which produced the rock musical version of ''Theatre/TwoGentlemenOfVerona'' in which he played Proteus. He also played Guido Contini in the original Broadway production ''Theatre/{{Nine}}'', and starred in revivals of ''Where's Charley?'', ''Theatre/TheThreepennyOpera'' and ''ManOfLaMancha''.

His last big-screen role was in the ''Film/StreetFighter'' movie, where he played BigBad M. Bison with all the [[LargeHam hammy aplomb]] one would expect for a role like that one ([[HamAndCheese in a]] ''[[HamAndCheese movie]]'' [[HamAndCheese like that one]]!). While the movie itself isn't considered quality cinema by any means, many would agree that Julia's performance alone is enough to make the movie SoBadItsGood instead of merely bad. His children were huge fans of the video games, so he selected that role in order to [[SoMyKidsCanWatch give them a film they could enjoy]], knowing that it would likely be the last one he would ever do before succumbing to stomach cancer.
