Biography

Fearsome American ex-boxer Randall "Tex" Cobb, in films from 1983, can usually be found playing born-to-raise-hell characters with names like Box, Wolf, Swede, or simply Big Harry Con. A godsend to comedy films, Cobb has menaced Chevy Chase in Fletch Lives (1985), Jim Varney in Ernest Goes to Jail (1990), Jim Carrey in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1993), and Leslie Nielsen in Naked Gun 33 1/3 (1994). Perhaps Randall "Tex" Cobb's nastiest cinematic alter ego was Leonard Smalls, the "Lone Biker of the Apocalypse" in the Coen brothers' Raising Arizona (1987). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
