Here finally is a new posting. Sorry for the lack of, but I’ve had some health issues taking precedent. One is a broken toe and the other is migraines. The only thing I can do when one of those hits is lie down and do stuff on my phone. I can’t sit at a desk and do any kind of work. I hope you understand. This time we have one of Bill’s films from 2003 called THE BATTLE OF SHAKER HEIGHTS where Bill plays the part of Abraham “Abe” Enswiler the father of Shia LaBeouf. The film ironically also stars Shiri Appleby who was also on ROSWELL as Liz Parker with Bill as Sheriff Jim Valenti. I have both screencaps and Bill’s bits. Enjoy.
A few new scans from 1999 and 2000. Some are just on films Bill starred in, one is a long form interview I transcribed from the scans. In this interview Bill talks all about his genre films including DEMON KNIGHT, THE GREEN MILE, THE SHAWKSHANK REDEMPTION, BILL & TED’S BOGUS JOURNEY and mostly his role as Sheriff Jim Valenti on ROSWELL. I’ll link the transcribed version as well as the other scans uploaded.
I’ve added another set of scans to the gallery, in addition I’ve also typed out the article and added it to the press section. The reason is it’s a direct interview with Bill and I thought the text of it should be in the press section. You’ll find both at the links below. Enjoy.
I thought I’d do an omnibus of Bill’s press scans from 1995. The magazines include Fangoria, Gorezone, and Cinfantastique all with articles on Bill’s film TALES FROM THE CRYPT: DEMON KNIGHT” as the warrior for Christ, Frank Brayker and his television guest appearance in THE OUTER LIMITS episode Valerie 23 where he is most convincing as a paraplegic as Frank Hellner. This could realistically be called the “Tale of Two Franks” post. Enjoy.
Another set of scans this time from Fangoria magazine on Bill’s film THE SHAWSHANK REDEPTION. Here author Stephen King and director Frank Darabont discuss the film the magazine has called “not a horror film.” Ironic that it comes from one of the most prolific horror writers in the world.
Following on the other post, here is an interview with Keanu Reeves (Bill S. Preston Esquire) and Alex Winter (Ted “Theodore” Logan) on the making of BILL & TED’S BOGUS JOURNEY. Bill is mentioned.
I’m beginning the first of a shit ton of press scans I’ve collected of Bill and his various works. Here is a flashback to 1991 and Starlog Magazine going onto the set of BILL & TED’S BOGUS JOURNEY. Enjoy.
I just found an interview Bill did with the Be More Super Podcast on Youtube. Here Bill and host Bryan discuss Bill’s storied career in motion pictures, television, the stage, and music. Bill is again charming and engaging as he recalls stories from his experience in making films and television. Enjoy.
BILL & TED FACE THE MUSIC will be getting its home video release. According to Horror Cult Films, the film will be released on 09 January, 2021. It will contain the following extras aslo the box art.

Bill appeared in the season three season of HOMELAND as White House Chief of Staff Michael Higgins. This was an excellent show, however, Bill’s character had the bad joss to be sitting next to DarAdol (F. Murray Abraham). His scenes with Mandy Patinkin as Saul Berenson were amazing. I always love seeing my favourite actors in my favourite shows. Makes them all the more special…. and Bill is special.
