Who was Bo Hopkins?

Bo Hopkins was born in Greenville, South Carolina, in February 1942.

Early in his career, he often played bandits and bad guys, such as in The Wild Bunch, the 1969 film that kicked off his career.

Later on, his thick southern drawl and “good ole boy” persona led him to roles that were on the more law-abiding side of things, such as a small town sheriff, and several roles as lawyers, according to his IMDb page.

He starred in several Hollywood movies, including Midnight Express and American Graffiti.

What was Bo Hopkins’ cause of death?

He died on Saturday, May 28, 2022, in a California hospital.

His wife of 33 years, Sian, told the Hollywood Reporter that he’d suffered a heart attack a few weeks earlier, on May 9.
