Al Matthews, "Fool". Al Mathews recently died. Matthews is best known for his role as Sergeant Al Apone in Aliens, which has often been considered one of the great movie portrayals of a US Marine (Matthews himself had been one, and put a lot of working into making sure the characters were handled in a way that made them believable as Marines). But the multitalented man did quite a few other things. Above is what he would be best known for if he weren't known for his role in Aliens.
