James Coburn

James Harrison Coburn III (August 31, 1928 – November 18, 2002) was an American actor. He was featured in more than 70 films, largely action roles, and made 100 television appearances during a 45-year career, ultimately winning an Academy Award in 1999 for his supporting role as Glen Whitehouse in Affliction. Coburn was a capable, rough-hewn leading man, whose toothy grin and lanky physique made him a perfect tough guy in numerous leading and supporting roles in westerns and action films, such as The Magnificent Seven; Hell Is for Heroes; The Great Escape; Charade; Our Man Flint; In Like Flint; Duck, You Sucker!; Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid; and Cross of Iron.
