Edward C. "Eddy" Waller (June 14, 1889 – August 20, 1977) was an American film and television actor, originally from Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.

Career

Waller worked in vaudeville and theater before he entered Hollywood, having appeared in more than 250 sound films between 1929 and 1963, including 116 westerns and six serials. Within a few years he was being cast in character parts, becoming a mainstay in the westerns of Republic Pictures and would work with just about every cowboy actor. He is best remembered as Nugget Clark, the sidekick in many films starring Allan 'Rocky' Lane between 1947 to 1953.

In 1956, Waller became Rusty Lee, the saddle partner to actor Douglas Kennedy in the short-lived television series, Steve Donovan, Western Marshal. After that, he appeared in several A-westerns and television programs and was a semi-regular as Mose Shell, the dedicated stagecoach driver, in nineteen episodes of the NBC western series, Laramie, with John Smith and Robert Fuller.

Waller had a supporting role in the 1957-1958 syndicated series, Casey Jones starring Alan Hale, Jr. (later of Gilligan's Island). Waller played "Red Rock", the train conductor of Casey's Cannonball Express. Other roles on the series were filled by child actor Bobby Clark and Dub Taylor.

Waller died of a stroke in Los Angeles, California, at the age of eighty-eight.
