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.
Soaring crime rates prompt the United States to turn New York City into a maximum-security prison -- which is precisely where the U.S. president (Donald Pleasence) lands when he's forced to bail out of Air Force One in director John Carpenter's action classic. Condemned criminal and former war hero Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell) rescues the commander-in-chief, but on one condition: The President must promise to grant Plissken his freedom.
