Wings Hauser Death – Dead: American actor and occasional director who received an Independent Spirit Award nomination for his supporting role in Tough Guys Don’t Dance (1987) Wings Hauser has passed away. Wings Hauser was reported to have died today August 12 2020. He died at the age of 72. Wings cause of death or what led to his demise has not been made public.
Hauser was born in Hollywood, California, the son of Geraldine (née Thienes) and director and producer Dwight Hauser (1911–1969). His brother is actor Erich Hauser. In 1967, Hauser landed his first acting role as a marine rifleman in the World War II-drama First to Fight.
Wings Hauser, the only guy who could make trash like MUTANT (1984) semi-watchable. His performance as Ramrod in the Scorsese-approved VICE SQUAD, is indelible. Guess tonight’s the night I finally watch THE CARPENTER (1988), which is on Prime.
Tributes Flood Twitter
One of Wings Hauser’s lesser- known films is 1994’s GANG WARS (he also directed), in which he plays a father who takes on a street gang after they attack his gay son. It’s not a great film, but it’s certainly an interesting and surprisingly progressive one for the DTV era. pic.twitter.com/46GLLEOAVA

As I’m being relegated to the bedroom in lieu of a 90 Day Fiancé marathon tonight, a Wings Hauser film seems apropos.

So I just got word that Wings Hauser has passed away. His films were incredible and he was a very eccentric guy but he will he missed.

Man, Wings Hauser was absolutely great in the movie Vice Squad (1982) [which is admittedly the only large role of his I’ve seen.] He always brought a vitality to his roles – never really afraid to go over-the-top or playing characters that are absolute scumbags. Really sad news. https://t.co/7onBjCGrrr

Wings Hauser was the lead in WATCHERS 3—a blatant ripoff of PREDATOR that I watched dozens of times as a child. It rules and so did he.

Just read where Wings Hauser died.
Somehow, this led me into a Wikihole in which I was reading about Australian Bushrangers.
