You might know Sidney Eddie Mosesian better as Sid Haig. He was an American actor, musician, and film producer. Born in Fresno in California, Haig does not come from a family related to the show business. In fact, his career started as somewhat of an accident. When he was young, his rapid growth led to troubles with motor coordination, due to which he had to take dancing lessons. Soon enough, he was a paid dancer in a children’s Christmas show and joined a vaudeville revival show.
Haig also has a talent for music, particularly drums, having mastered a wide array of styles including swing, jazz, blues, rock and roll, and country. During Haig’s high school, the head of his drama department encouraged him to pursue an acting career. Eventually, Haig’s talent was noticed and he realized that he should pursue acting professionally. As a result, he enrolled at the Pasadena Playhouse, the school where the likes of Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffman were trained.
Haig’s first acting job was in Jack Hill’s UCLA student film titled ‘The Host’. Haig would go on to have a prolific acting career, spanning more than four decades in over 50 movies and 350 television episodes. He went on to appear in several of Hill’s movies as well. Haig went on to appear in movies like ‘Diamonds are Forever’, while also appearing in several programs including ‘Batman‘, ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’, and ‘The A-Team’.
Haig retired in 1992 since he felt he had been typecast in the roles and did not want to play the stereotypical bad guy. As a result, he passed up the chance to play the part of a certain Marsellus Wallace, in Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Pulp Fiction‘. However, the director went on to specifically write the part of the judge in ‘Jackie Brown‘ with Haig in mind. Haig’s career completely restarted when he appeared in Rob Zombie’s debut movie ‘House of 1000 Corpses’. This marked Haig’s first appearance as Captain Spaulding, who has now become iconic in the horror genre. He went on to appear in subsequent Rob Zombie movies, ‘The Devil’s Rejects’ and ‘3 From Hell’.
It is evident that Haig has had a prolific career, especially in exploitation movies. Unfortunately, the actor passed away on September 21, 2019.
