Also interested in acting, Hayes made his big-screen debut in the Italian flick Three Tough Guys (1974); later that same year, he landed a starring role in Truck Turner. It would be seven years, however, before he appeared in his next film, John Carpenter's Escape from New York.
Since then, Hayes has continued to split his time between music and film projects such as I'm Gonna Git You Sucka, Blues Brothers 2000 and Hustle & Flow. From 1997 through 2006, he voiced the role of Chef on "South Park." Hayes died on Aug. 10, 2008, at the age of 65.
This crass animated series started as a potty-mouthed response to sitcoms that portrayed children as angelic figures, but evolved into one of television's most effective satires, joyfully skewering cultural trends, celebrities and political figures.
