Michael Emmet Walsh (born March 22, 1935) is an American movie, television, stage, and voice actor. He has appeared in over 200 movies and television series.[1] He is known for his roles in The Jerk, Blood Sample, Killer Image, and in Wild Wild West.[2]

According to Roger Ebert's Stanton-Walsh Rule, "no movie featuring either Harry Dean Stanton or M. Emmet Walsh in a supporting role can be altogether bad." Ebert later conceded that this rule was broken by 1999's Wild Wild West (Walsh) and Dream a Little Dream (Stanton).
