I just found this while doing a search on Youtube on Bill. Bill was interviewed Monsters, Madness and Magic. Here he discussed his early work in theatre as a young actor and his various projects on Broadway. He also discussed his most successful roles including DEMON KNIGHT, THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, THE GREEN MILE, TRESPASS, BILL & TED’S BOGUS JOURNEY, BILL AND TED FACE THE MUSIC, DIE HARD 2, and THE MIST. I love when Bill talks about his stage work and his theatre days. He’s so humble and sweet. I’m sorry I haven’t been posting much, but I’m currently working on research for the novel I’m writing. I’m currently wading hip-deep in Russian history, The Vietnam War, and spaces in between
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.
To say this film is quirky is cutting it short. This is the ultimate heist film with a bunch of twists and turns. Bill’s character though by all intents and purposes seems to be a small one, but turns out to be integral to the plot that is why I’m not going to give anything away by posting any clips to the film. I really want his fans to experience this film on your own. I have to say this film buttresses his earlier film HANKY PANKY quite well. It seems Bill got a bit of ahhhhhhh, promotion? Here Bill plays another Frank. This follows his role as Frank Brayker in DEMON KNIGHT.
The website That Hashtag Show has selected five double feature vids for you to spend your Halloween with. They mentioned specifically two of William’s films for your consideration. They selected TALES FROM THE CRYPT PRESENTS: DEMON KNIGHT where he played Frank Brayker, and VFW where he played Walter Reed. I’m so happy they focused in on these two classics from William’s filmography. And their praise for him made this gal’s heart melt.
4. William Sadler-A-Thon: Tales From The Crypt Presents: Demon Knight (1995)/VFW (2019)
Now, you might be asking yourself, “what in the flying f*ck do these have to do with each other?”. There is a common thread among them. And that’s William Sadler. William Sadler being immeasurably badass. That’s really the only thing that connects these two, but I’m all for a Sadler-A-Thon. Demon Knight is a hugely underrated horror flick that gets lost because it’s a Tales From The Crypt spin-off from the 90’s. Don’t let that stop you from enjoying Sadler tussle with Billy Zane’s The Collector.
I’ve already reviewed VFW as part of Fright-A-Thon, so you can read that review right here. But it’s safe to say that Sadler gives another great performance in this film as well. It’s a classic feeling film made in 2019, so you can’t really get much better than that.
