Bill Voices David Drayton in “The Mist” 1984 Audio Drama

Bill’s association with Stephen King didn’t start in 1994’s THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION as the hapless Heywood. It started in 1984 where he voiced the part of David Drayton, played by Thomas Jane in the Frank Darabont directed film. This audio recording is quite good though I have to say the woman voicing the part of Mrs. Carmody can’t hold a candle to the inspired and dedicated performance of Marica Gay Hardin in the film. Bill would go on to star in three other films based on a King penned book. Those are THE GREEN MILE as Klaus Detterick, THE MIST as Jim Grondin, and currently he’s filming a big screen version of SALEM’S LOT. His role is as yet unknown. The featured image is from the 4k black and white version of the film.

Site Status Update

I know it’s been a while since I posted anything new. I wanted to let you know I haven’t abandoned the site. My life has been very busy lately and I’ve got a ton of things happening all at once. I don’t know if I mentioned this, but I’m in the process of researching to write my first novel. Websites are my hobby and at times I just don’t have the time for them that I want to. Particularly when real life piles up. Along with the first novel thing, there have been some illnesses in the family and that takes precedence in terms of it should be expected. It’s not COVID, thankfully. I’ve also been working on another project not related to the web that again has taken up a lot of my time. I’m truly hoping I can get back into some kind of schedule in the coming weeks. I’m not sure when uploads will resume, but for now the site has been up for you. It will remain up no matter what. I know there was a bit of a glitch there causing the site to be offline. I’m sorry for that. I found the cause and it’s fixed now. I want to say thank you all for your understanding and to those who reached out to me via email. Your thoughts are welcomed and appreciated. Please take care and here’s to getting back into Bill’s career. I have been keeping track of anything he’s up to including his role in SALEM’S LOT, his sixth association with a Stephen King property. I’ve got something I’m working on for your pleasure that will be up soon. Stay tuned.
