Paul Koslo (born June 27, 1944) is a German- Canadian actor.
Koslo started his career in such 1970s cult films as
a.k.a. Nam's Angels The Losers, (referenced in Quentin Tarantino's ), Pulp Fiction , Mr. Majestyk , Vanishing Point and Joe Kidd . He also appeared opposite The Stone Killer Charlton Heston in the SF cult-classic, in an unusually sympathetic co-starring role. He and fellow The Omega Man Omega Man costar Anthony Zerbe also appeared in with Rooster Cogburn John Wayne and Katharine Hepburn. After a solid supporting part as a Jewish concentration camp survivor in the critically acclaimed , as well as the mayor in Voyage of the Damned , he began a long run of portraying villainous types in productions such as Heaven's Gate , Roots: The Next Generations The Ransom, [1 ] and Love and Bullets .

In rare, in-depth interviews with both

, The Rockford Files , Mission Impossible , Quincy, M.E. , Buck Rogers in the 25th Century , T. J. Hooker , The A-Team , The Fall Guy and Dallas . He also appeared as Hunter Jesse James in seventh season episode "Go West, Young Dukes".

He was also in The Dukes of Hazzard (1990) with Loose Cannons Gene Hackman and Dan Aykroyd and appeared as the Russian battle-robot pilot Alexander in the cult science fiction film (1990). Robot Jox
