Edgar Dearing (May 4, 1893 - August 17, 1974) was an American actor who became heavily type cast as a motorcycle cop in Hollywood films. He started in silent comedy shorts for Hal Roach, including several with Laurel and Hardy, notably in their classic Two Tars, probably his best ever screen role. He later had supporting roles in several of their features for 20th Century Fox in the 1940s. Dearing continued in his familiar persona until the early 1950s, when he appeared in many westerns, usually as a sheriff. He was still active in films and TV until he retired in the early 1960s; he died from lung cancer and was buried at Chapel of the Pines Crematory.
