Biography

Wilson est né dans la petite ville de Thomasville en Géorgie. Il a fait ses débuts à l'écran en jouant des personnages soupçonnés de meurtre dans ses trois premiers films. Dans son premier film, Wilson incarne le suspect d'un meurtre dans Dans la chaleur de la nuit (1967). Son rôle suivant, la même année, fut De sang-froid, adapté du livre du même nom de Truman Capote. Wilson interprétait le meurtrier Richard Hickock, tandis que Robert Blake jouait son partenaire, Perry Smith.

Le réalisateur Richard Brooks avait choisi Wilson et Blake pour les rôles principaux car ils étaient inconnus à l’époque. Le réalisateur a travaillé avec des acteurs plus connus, notamment Steve McQueen et Paul Newman. Wilson expliqua plus tard les motivations du casting de Brooks : « Brooks a embauché deux « inconnus » et il voulait que cela reste ainsi. Nous avons été traités comme deux tueurs qu'il avait en quelque sorte rencontrés ». Wilson s'est rendu à Sparta dans l'Illinois (où le film avait été tourné) le 15 mars 2014 pour célébrer le 175e anniversaire de la ville.

Le film a valu à Wilson une apparition sur la couverture du magazine Life le 12 mai 1967. Wilson n'avait que 25 ans à l'époque. Sur la couverture, Truman Capote se tient entre Wilson et Blake sur une autoroute vide du Kansas. La légende, Nightmare Revisited, apparaît avec eux sur la couverture. Wilson est apparu dans Gatsby le Magnifique en 1974 aux côtés de Robert Redford. Il a reçu une nomination au Golden Globe en 1980 pour le meilleur second rôle pour sa performance dans La Neuvième Configuration du réalisateur William Peter Blatty. Il a perdu le Golden Globe au profit de Timothy Hutton. En 1995, Wilson fut remarqué pour son rôle d'aumônier de prison dans La Dernière Marche, mettant en vedette Susan Sarandon et Sean Penn, d'après le livre du même nom de Sœur Helen Prejean.

La longue filmographie de Wilson inclut également Les parachutistes arrivent, L'Étoffe des héros, L'Année du soleil calme (film), Malone, un tueur en enfer, The Grass Harp, Junebug, The Host, Monster, Young Guns 2, Pearl Harbor (film), Le Grand Stan, Judge Dredd et la série de films Shaïlo et Derrière le masque. Wilson a tourné en Corée du Sud, au Japon et en Espagne. Il a joué un rôle récurrent dans plusieurs épisodes des Experts dans le rôle de Sam Braun, père de l’enquêtrice Catherine Willows (jouée par Marg Helgenberger). Braun a été tué dans l'épisode Built to Kill, Part 2. À l'automne 2011, il a également fait une apparition aux côtés de Laura Dern dans la série de HBO, Enlightened.

Wilson a été choisi comme vétérinaire, Hershel Greene, lors de la deuxième saison de The Walking Dead en juin 2011. Ce rôle lui a valu des critiques positives, notamment dans TV Guide qui indiquait qu'il avait apporté « des nuances subtiles d'humanité au personnage de Hershel Greene ». Wilson s'est vu offrir la possibilité de rejoindre la distribution de la série en se rendant en Géorgie pour rendre visite à sa mère, âgée de 97 ans. Il a décrit sa mère comme « une fan de la série ». Wilson quitte la série en décembre 2013.

Wilson a évoqué sa carrière dans une interview accordée à Rodney Ho pour le Access Atlanta, en 2011 : « Cela a toujours été le cas. Vous avez toujours été sec. À différents moments, vous recommencez. Si vous aimez, vous restez. C’est ce que je suis en train de faire. J’ai accompli plus que je ne l’aurais espéré. Je ne veux pas être une grande star de cinéma. Je peux être quelqu'un qui marche dans les rues et ne pas être assailli. Je veux être aussi bon acteur que je puisse être. Je m'efforce toujours d'être aussi bon que possible ». Wilson filmait des scènes pour The Walking Dead à Senoia en Géorgie lors de l'entretien. En 2014, Wilson a joué le rôle de Dr Guyot dans la série d'Amazon Bosch. En 2016, il est apparu dans la série Netflix The OA.

Le 6 octobre 2018, il décède des suites d'une leucémie à l'âge de 76 ans.

The movie begins with Marty Preston (Jason Dolley) explaining the events of Shiloh and Shiloh 2: Shiloh Season. Then Judd Travers (Scott Wilson) shows up at the Preston home with dead squirrels as a present for Marty and his family for helping him after his truck accident in the second film. A fearful Shiloh runs into the kitchen since he is still scared of Judd. Marty's sister, Becky (Liberty Smith), embarrasses her mother, Louise (Ann Dowd), when she calls Judd the meanest man since Judd says he has eaten dead squirrels all his life. Soon, Marty hears from his two best friends, David Howard (Jordan Garrett) and Samantha Wallace (Taylor Momsen), that after a fist fight, a drunken Judd has been charged with murder. Marty brings Judd some squirrel stew and offers to help Judd, believing that he hasn't committed murder. Soon after, when Marty is helping Judd build a fence for his hunting dogs, Judd accidentally steps on one of his dog's paws. The dog starts attacking Judd, biting his good leg. Judd doesn't show any fear, grabbing the dog and swinging him at a fence. Afterwards, when Dara Lynn (Kyle Chavarria), another of Marty's sisters, falls into a lake, Marty jumps in to save her. Shiloh jumps in to help but gets caught in the current, which leads toward Miller Falls. Marty goes back into the lake to save Shiloh but gets caught in a branch. Seeing this, Judd jumps off a cliff into the lake to free Marty. Marty explains to Judd that Shiloh is going to go over the waterfall unless he saves him.

In 1876, U.S. Army captain Civil War veteran Nathan Algren is traumatized by his participation in atrocities during the Indian Wars, and has become an embittered alcoholic. Algren is approached by his former commanding officer, Colonel Bagley, on behalf of Japanese businessman Omura, who wishes to hire distinguished U.S. soldiers to train the Imperial Japanese Army to suppress a samurai rebellion, led by Katsumoto Moritsugu. In exchange, Japan would ratify a lucrative trade agreement that would grant the U.S. exclusive rights to supply arms to the Japanese government. Although Algren despises Bagley for having ordered atrocities during the Indian wars, he accepts the job for the money and sails to Japan. Most of the soldiers being trained are little more than inexperienced peasants and farmers.The training is interrupted when the samurai rebels attack a railroad owned by Omura; Bagley orders the regiment to mobilize, overruling Algren's objection that the soldiers are not ready. Algren is proved correct: during a battle in a foggy forest in Yoshino Province, the undisciplined and intimidated soldiers panic and are quickly routed by the samurai horsemen. Algren kills several samurai with his revolver and saber but is eventually knocked from his horse. Algren desperately fights using a spear tipped flagstaff with a flag of a white tiger until he collapses from complete exhaustion. As he is about to be vanquished, he kills his would-be executioner with the staff's spear tip. His ferocity and refusal to surrender, as well as the image of the white tiger on the flag he is fighting with, reminds Katsumoto of a recurring dream. As a result, Algren is spared and taken captive to the rebels' village in the mountains.
