Landham's sister, Dawn Boehler, said the actor died from congestive heart failure Thursday at a Lexington, Kentucky, hospital. Landham was a brawny, deep-voiced actor and stunt man who played a bit part in Walter Hill's 1979 street-gang thriller "The Warriors" before the director cast him as the trigger-happy criminal Billy Bear in 1982's "48 Hrs."

Was that the guy that needed a bodyguard to keep him from going nuts and killing people?

Oh shit, forgot that he was in the Warriors.

Probably going to watch that again at least once this weekend.

Lol, he was one of the cops in the Subway.

Yea I heard he was a nut on the set of predator. Need a security guard to protect the set people from him or something to that effect.

Legend. All I can say.
Badass in "48 Hours" as Gans' partner Billy Bear.
Beat down Stallone in "Lock Up".
Ultimate tracker in "Predator."

RARE Footage of Predator Actor Sonny Landham in 2017! "We are all gonna Die"

Damn, never realized he was in the other movies, his character in Predator is one of the most memorable characters of any movie I remember growing up. He came across as a bad ass and kind of scary guy IMO, and apparently from previous posts about him being crazy, he probably was pretty similar in real life.

Wow, per wiki,

On June 25, 2008, Landham announced his candidacy for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Mitch McConnell on the Libertarian line.[9] The same day Landham was accused of calling for genocide against Arabs (whom Landham referred to as "camel dung shovelers," "camel jockeys," and "rag-heads") for his comments on the political radio show The Weekly Filibuster.[10] Three days later, on June 28, the Kentucky Libertarians voted unanimously to withdraw Landham's nomination, citing his comments were not in keeping with the party's platform and values.[11]

RIP. I read that Sonny was one crazy fucker and the cast was scared of him. Including Arnold.

Billy: I'm scared Poncho.
Poncho: Bullshit. You ain't afraid of no man.
Billy: There's something out there waiting for us, and it ain't no man. We're all gonna die.
