A tough-looking, heavyset supporting comic, Leo Willis entered films as an extra in 1916, reportedly from a background as a commercial artist. Willis went on to play villainous types opposite nearly every silent clown, and quite a few vocal ones, in a career that lasted through the mid-'30s and included such memorable bit parts as Leo Hickory in The Kid Brother (1927) and the torturer in Roman Scandals (1933).
