'Tremors' Actor Tony Genaro Dies at 72

He also appeared in such films as “The Milagro Beanfield War,” “Heart and Souls,” “The Craft” and “World Trade Center.”
Tony Genaro, a veteran character actor who is perhaps best known for playing the cattle rancher Miguel in the Kevin Bacon cult classic Tremors and its second sequel, has died. He was 72.

Genaro died May 7 of natural causes at his Hollywood home, his daughter Zhanara told The Hollywood Reporter.
A native of Gallup, N.M., Genaro’s first big break came with a role as store owner Nick Rael in Robert Redford’s American Southwest-set The Milagro Beanfield War (1988).

In the supernatural teen film The Craft (1996), Genaro played the bus driver who drops off the four girls (Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell and Rachel True) outside Los Angeles and warns them to “watch out for those weirdos.”
“We are the weirdos, mister,” replies Balk’s character, Nancy.

Genaro also portrayed the father of Michael Pena’s Port Authority police officer character in Oliver Stone’s gripping World Trade Center (2006).
His film résumé includes such films as La Bamba (1987); Ted & Venus (1991); Final Analysis (1992); Heart and Souls (1993) and Mighty Joe Young (1998), both directed by Tremors helmer Ron Underwood; Phenomenon (1996); The Mask of Zorro (1998); Anger Management (2003); and The Soloist (2009).

On television, he appeared on such shows as The Shield, CSI: Miami, Will & Grace and Walker, Texas Ranger, among many others.
In Tremors, his character escaped the first Graboid attack, but he’s killed by a creature when he’s knocked off a cliff in the straight-to-video sequel Tremors 3: Back to Perfection (2001).

Born Anthony Genaro Acosta, the oldest sibling of four boys and one girl, he attended San Diego State University and worked as a licensed psychiatric technician at Patton State Hospital in Patton, Calif., for several years.

In The Movie "Tremors" Far Right.....

"Albert, do you REALLY think you are old enough to know what love is?"
"I must be Pa. I love you, I have for a long time."
