Anthony James (born July 22, 1942) is a retired American actor. He specialized in creepy, sleazy villains in films and television, many of them Westerns. His first major role, and probably his best-known, was as Ralph, the diner counterman in the 1967 Oscar-winning movie In the Heat of the Night, but he was also known for his role as one of the lynch mobsters in Clint Eastwood's High Plains Drifter (1973). He continued working regularly until Eastwood's Unforgiven (1992), when he retired from acting.[1]
