Eli Wallach


Eli Wallach was one ugly man, so much so that they even gave him that title, "Ugly," in one of his most famous films, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Born in Brooklyn, he was the son of Polish immigrants. While his parents wanted him to be a teacher, he preferred acting and set his sights on following his big dream. It didn't take long before he was noticed for his acting skill and he started landing major roles, both on stage and on the big screen. He co-starred with many of Hollywood's greatest actors and actresses in the 1950s and 1960s. The depths of his acting ability were endless; he played everything from a Mexican bandit to an Italian mobster. He was known for his charisma and charm, which trumped his less-than-attractive looks.

Eli Wallach lived a long life and died at the ripe old age of 98 on June 24, 2014. Eleven of our Deadpoolers knew that it was his time to leave the stage and helped to send him packing: Dianagram, Exuma, Grim McGraw, Headless Horseman, Koko-Moxie, Loki, Mark, The Wiz, Tim J., Walking Dead Dude, and Worm Farmer.
