The shambling, craggy-face performer had a decades-long career that included memorable turns in “Alien,” ”Paris, Texas,” ”Cool Hand Luke” and many other films and TV shows.
Stanton was also almost always cast as a crook, a codger, an eccentric or a loser.

Recently he reunited with his frequent collaborator David Lynch in Showtime’s “Twin Peaks: The Return,” and stars with Lynch in the upcoming film “Lucky.”
