Actor. A prolific American film and television actor noted primarily for his roles as villains, mostly in Westerns. He started as a stuntman in the 1930s and his first appearance on screen was in San Francisco (1936). He soon began to acquire regular character parts, mainly as a heavy, and made his mark when, along with Lee Van Cleef and Sheb Wooley, he played one of the "three men waiting at the station" in High Noon (1952). A western "bad guy", Wilke was among those actors who fall into the "man with no name" category. While his face was instantly recognizable, few cinemagoers actually knew his name.
