‘Walking Dead’ actor Scott Wilson dies at 76

It was on the set of that film, which went on to win the best picture Oscar, that he developed a relationship with the film’s star, Sidney Poitier. Poitier recommended the 24-year-old Wilson to Richard Brooks, who was adapting Truman Capote’s “In Cold Blood.” Wilson was cast in the highly coveted role of murderer Dick Hickock, who, with drifter Perry Smith, killed four members of the Clutter family in Kansas in 1959.
