Randall Rudy Quaid (born October 1, 1950) is an American actor, who first gained traction in the 1970s as a character actor. He first got widespread attention playing the ill-fated Navy sailor Meadows in The Last Detail, which earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Throughout his career, he's dabbled in more dramatic work such as Midnight Express and Independence Day and comedic films such as National Lampoon's Vacation.

By the late-2000s, Quaid, alongside his wife Evi, would fall into a series of odd behavior, worrying about Hollywood Star Whackers, of which he claimed killed celebrities such as Heath Ledger and was fearing they were coming after him. After a series of legal issues, the Quaids moved to Canada in 2010. But after being denied citizenship, they ended up going to Vermont, where they reside today, away from the Hollywood lifestyle.


Actor Dennis Quaid is his younger brother.
