American actor with a mashed-in nose and salty performance style. A hard-working professional, he richly deserves the cult-figure status he earned in his 30-year career. His films leaned toward B pictures in the genre of crime, war and action thrillers along with slasher films and buddy pictures as well as erotic thrillers. He may be best known as gonzo undercover cop Pete Royster on the Angie Dickinson TV vehicle "Police Woman," 1974-'78, along with his roles in the two top features, "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," 1969 and "The Sting," 1973.
Starting with "The Pawnbroker" in 1965, Dierkop’s most recent film in 2000 was "Dead Man’s Bluff." He has also had a steady run of performances in various TV series.
