This actor is an example of:
- An Arm and a Leg: Some of his more famous roles have him playing a character who loses or has lost a hand, like Al Dillon, Chubbs Peterson and Combat Carl.
- Fountain of Memes: Between Apollo Creed, Al Dillon, Chubbs Peterson, and... himself (sorta), baby, you got a stew goin' on.
