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.
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.

- 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).
It’s finally out! Bill has finally released an album of his own self-written songs. Some have already appeared in video form on his Youtube, but there are some original songs previously unreleased. All proceeds from the sale go to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a cause very close to Bill’s heart. Below is a list of the songs on the album. If you would like to purchase it, please use the visual link above the cut.

Continuing on with season two, Jim is heading for a confrontation with those who would seek to destroy the kids for who they are. Jim’s defense is so great, is he willing to sacrifice his livelihood to protect them?
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.
