Where the hell is Billy Zane? One of the best recent character actors just disapeared off the face of the earth after Titanic. Hopefully when I start directing films professionally, I can resurrect his career; a'la Tarantino with Tierny, Travolta, Grier, Forrester, and Carradine.

Imagine a dark, brooding Western (with the violence of a Spaghetti Western) with Billy Zane, Johnny Depp, Michael Madsen, David Carradine and Clint Eastwood. :)

Hopefully he STARS in a good film soon, I quite like Billy Zane. Until then, I will begin writing my Western script. :D

I'm still waiting for Morgan's Ferry to hit video or DVD--- I heard Rollins talking about his embarassment shooting his nude scenes and general "behind the scenes" stories from the film back in 99 and have been hoping to catch it ever since.

Vince, I never heard that story from Rollins and I've got practically every one of his spoken-word CDs. Does that one appear in a recorded form somewhere?

Rollins = da man.

cheers,
Phil

"What made you THINK you could put your hands on my fiance? Answer me, you filth!"

I just love his perf as Cal. His sense of bourgeois bitchiness and patrician condescension is so damn flawless. It makes his "God damn it all to Hell" moment of going to the other side of the ship to find Rose all the more emotional because you realize, although he's an asshole, he does love her.


"Did you know [he] is from the Motisa tribe?" [taps empty tea cup against saucer]

"Mo' tea, suh?"

LOL.

Slam Evil,

His finest moment for me was when he was eaten in Critters. It doesn't get any better than that!

Yeah, that's a great moment, and I think everybody really got it.

For the amount of screentime he has, that character is amazingly layered.

Billy Zane is criminally attractive. He also OWNS the first Crypt film. He has a rich voice as well. I loved him in Phantom, but it probably dashed his chance at being a leading man.

I thought he did an excellent job in the big T.

Hope he gets in some more films soon,
Chuck

Don't forget Tombstone ;)
