RIP Robert Z’Dar 1950-2015

We’re sad to report that the ‘Maniac Cop’ himself Robert Z’Dar has passed away.

The instantly recognisable actor is most famous for his roles in the Maniac Cop Trilogy but he also starred in Tango & Cash, Mobsters and many other genre pictures.

According to Empire, Z’Dar was attending the Pensacon genre convention in Pensacola, Florida over the weekend when he suffered a heart attack. He had been due to start work on Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance shortly. His final completed film was an action comedy with Sid Haig called High On The Hog, in which he played The Mayor.

 

“We talked every day,” said his agent and friend Jim Decker. “We’ve been together through thick and thin. He was the first actor I took on in my career as an agent. We spent many weekends on the road together and a lot of time enjoying each other’s company. I miss him dearly.”

RIP sir, you will be missed.
