Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez Present
The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
A Band Apart Production
Blondie - Kiefer Sutherland
The Good, a subdued, cocksure bounty hunter who competes with Tuco and Angel Eyes to find the buried gold in the middle of the two warring factions of the Civil War. Blondie and Tuco have an ambivalent partnership - Tuco knows the name of the cemetery where the gold is hidden, but Blondie knows the name of the grave where it's buried, forcing them to work together to find the treasure. In spite of this greedy quest, Blondie's pity for the dying soldiers in the chaotic carnage of the War is evident. He performs nearly all actions with his left hand, to leave free his right hand, with which he draws.
Angel Eyes Sentenza - Javier Bardem
The Bad, a ruthless, unfeeling mercenary who kills anyone in his path. When Blondie and Tuco are captured while posing as Confederate soldiers, Angel Eyes is the Union sergeant who interrogates them and tortures Tuco, eventually learning the name of the cemetery where the gold is buried, but not the tombstone. Angel Eyes forms a fleeting partnership with Blondie, but Tuco and Blondie turn on Angel Eyes when they get their chance.
Tuco Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez - Joaquin Cosio
The Ugly, a comical, oafish, fast-talking bandit who is wanted by the authorities. Tuco manages to discover the name of the cemetery where the gold is buried, but he doesn't know the name of the grave. This state of affairs forces Tuco to become reluctant partners with Blondie.
Maria - Salma Hayek

Ernesto - Diego Luna
An young orphan who befriends Maria, who becomes like a big sister to him. He is killed by Angel Eyes.
Capt. Ouranon - Cheech Marin
A drunken Union captain who befriends Tuco and Blondie. He feels that the bloody siege his men are involved in is a futile waste, and dreams of destroying the bridge - a wish carried out by Blondie and Tuco. Mortally wounded in the Battle of Langstone Bridge, he dies just after hearing of the bridge's destruction.
Cpl. Menchaca / Wallace / Cuchillo ("Knife") - Danny Trejo
A thuggish prison guard who works for Angel Eyes and tortures Tuco to get him to reveal the hidden location of the treasure. Angel Eyes turns Tuco over to Wallace so that he can turn Tuco in for the reward money; Tuco, however, kills Wallace by pushing him out of a moving train.
Bill Carson / Jackson - Giancarlo Giannini
