Rodolfo Acosta Pérez (July 29, 1920 – November 7, 1974) was a Mexican character actor, typically playing heavies in Hollywood westerns. He worked in Mexico in films of the great director Emilio Fernández, which led to a bit in John Ford's 1947 film The Fugitive. He arrived in the US and was signed by Universal Studios for a small role in One Way Street (1950). He stayed in the US and his sharp, ruthless features led him to a long succession of roles as bandits, Native American warriors and outlaws. In The Tijuana Story (1957), he actually had a sympathetic leading role, but in general he spent his career as a familiar western antagonist.
