Joe Turkel was a prolific American character actor. He is noted for his craggy Bronx looks and distinctive, penetrating voice.
His most famous roles are as Tyrell, and as Lloyd, the Overlook Bartender in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining (1980). He has the distinction of being one of only two actors (the other being Philip Stone) to work with Kubrick as a credited character three times: in The Killing(1956, as Tiny), Paths of Glory (1957), a memorable turn as the doomed Private Arnaud and The Shining.
