“Full Circle” HD Screencaps Omnibus

Bill was off last year filming a limited series for HBO called FULL CIRCLE. In this his character, Gene McCusker, was involved in inter-family politics as he comes to terms with something between he and his brother, Jeff (Denis Quaid.) The series was really good and had one guessing till the last scene in the last episode. The series also starred Timothy Olyphant, Clare Danes (Bill guest starred on Danes’ former series HOMELAND), Suzanne Savoy, and CCH Pounder. Remember Pounder was in DEMON KNIGHT playing Irene, the owner of the boarding house where Bill’s character, Brayker, went to rest. Bill and CCH didn’t have any scenes together, which was kind of a bummer. Would have loved to have seen them together again.



“The Mist” To Get the 4K/Bluray Treatment

According to many sources, Bill’s film THE MIST where he played the part of Jim Grondin, will be getting the full 4K/Bluray treatment. The release date for this new remastered version is slated for 03 October, 2023. The alternate black and white version will also be included in the release. I’ve seen both and the black and white version is definitely creepier than the colour version. No matter though, the film is one of the most unsettling films I’ve seen in a long time. The specs and box art below.

The Mist 4K HD Blu-ray release date

The 4K HD, Blu-ray, and digital release date is October 3, 2023, for the suggested retail price of $34.99. The Best Buy Exclusive 4K HD, Blu-ray, and digital release will be for the suggested retail price of $37.99.

An alternate black and white version is included. It also features an audio commentary with writer-director Frank Darabont and producer Denise Huth. The Blu-ray features:

  • Deleted scenes with optional commentary by Frank Darabont
  • A conversation with Stephen King and Frank Darabont
  • Over 2 hours of total bonus material

“From legendary frightmaster Stephen King and Academy Award nominated writer-producer-director Frank Darabont comes one of the most tense and terrifying films since The Shining,” reads the official synopsis. “After a mysterious mist envelops a small New England town, a group of locals trapped in a supermarket must battle a siege of otherworldly creatures . . . and the fears that threaten to tear them apart.”

The cast includes Thomas Jane (Boogie Nights, The Punisher (2004)), Marcia Gay Harden (Miller’s Crossing, Pollock), Laurie Holden (TV’s The Walking Dead), Andre Braugher (TV’s Gideon’s Crossing, TV’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Toby Jones (Infamous, Tinker Tailor Solider Spy), and William Sadler (The Shawshank Redemption, Die Hard 2).

“Roswell” Season 2 Episodes 1, 2, 3, & 4 Screencaps

Finally, back at adding Bill’s ROSWELL episodes. Sorry it’s taken me so long, but…well….stuff. In the aftermath of finding out the kids’ secret identity, Sheriff Valenti has gone from foe to friend/protector. In season two he’s in a race to protect them from the authorities finding out their secret. I loved the scene in episodes two, Ask Not, when Jim welcomed Kyle (Nick Wechsler) from football camp where he’s embraced a Buddhist philosophy. I loved the rapport between Bill and Nick. So cute.


Filed under CHARACTERS Col. Stuart Die Hard 2 FILM Luther Sloan Star Trek: Deep Space Nine TELEVISION WILLIAM SADLER

“Star Trek – Deep Space Nine” – E7X23 Extreme Measures HD Screencaps

The last of Bill’s DS9 episodes. Here Julian Bashir (Alexander Siddig), and Chief Miles O’Brien (Colm Meaney) seek to find out the cure for a Dominion disease that has infected Odo (Rene Auberjonois.) To do this they must travel inside Sloan’s mind to find his secrets. A great cat-and-mouse episode for Sloan, Bashir, and O’Brien. It should be noted here that Bill and Colm also starred in DIE HARD 2: DIE HARDER. Bill of course played Colonel Stuart, and Colm the part of the British Airways plane pilot whose plane Stuart causes to crash.
