  Summary

  Biography  

 life and career
Walter was born in Jersey City, New Jersey, the son of a truck driver.

He is known for his portrayal of "side-kicks" and "henchmen" such as Bob the Goon in Batman, Cookie in City Slickers, and Malak in Conan the Destroyer. He portrayed Frog Rothchild Jr. on the ABC sitcom Best of the West from 1981 to 1982. Walter has acted in six Jonathan Demme films: Something Wild , Married to the Mob , The Silence of the Lambs , Philadelphia , Beloved , and The Manchurian Candidate . He has been directed by Danny DeVito in three films: Matilda , Death to Smoochy , and Duplex . The two have acted together in nine films, the first being Goin' South in 1978. He acted with and was directed by Jack Nicholson in The Two Jakes .

He appeared in a small role with Clint Eastwood in the 1982 film Honkytonk Man and has coined the phrase "Right Cheer" while playing a service station attendant as well as "Make 'Em Bounce from the movie Raggedy Man". His portrayal of Miller, the philosopher mechanic of Alex Cox's Repo Man, earned Walter a Saturn Award in 1984 for Best Supporting Actor. The film has achieved cult status perhaps, in part, due to Miller's memorable ruminations about a plate of shrimp and lines like "the more you drive, the less intelligent you are."

Walter's television credits include guest appearances on Taxi, Charlie's Angels, Hill Street Blues, Amazing Stories, Moonlighting, David Lynch's On the Air, Melrose Place, The Division, Veronica Mars, Criminal Minds and Cold Case. He had the recurring character on Nash Bridges of Angel from 1996–2001 and a recurring character on Reno 911! as Sheriff Walter Chechekevitch from 2003–2006.
