Chuck Aspegren


Chuck Aspegren conquered a small-time of fame after appearing in the Oscar winning film Voyage au bout de l'enfer (1978). In fact, he wasn't a trained actor but he was a steel worker from Gary, Indiana, who happened to be in the right place and the right time. When the likes of Robert De Niro and Christopher Walken began researching their roles as steel workers, they acquainted this charismatic guy, who worked as a general foreman at U.S. Steel, at a local bar and next thing you know, the film director Michael Cimino liked his presence and decided to cast him as one of the friends of the leading actors. Aspegren had the real charm and presence, very natural on the role as Axel and one of the most unforgettable characters of all time. Despite the film's success, Aspegren didn't follow a career in the movie business and little is known about him afterwards.
