    Go-to heavy

    Hi,

    Can anbody explain to me what go-to means in the context?

    Sometimes haunting the edges of great films and sometimes providing foils for cardboard heroes in, let us say, less-than-great films, Allerton, for one brief and shining moment, was the go-to heavy for all the studios, both major and minor.

    Heavy, Jay Bonansinga, 2012

    Thank you very much

    Re: Go-to heavy

    He was the actor all studios would go to (choose to cast) if they wanted someone for a 'heavy' role, some villainous part.
