I first seen Bill Paxton in either The Terminator of Lords of Discipline in the mid 80's, after that he was in a steady run of fun movies such as Weird Science, Near Dark, Aliens, Predator 2, True Lies. He's also appeared in some pretty big productions Apollo 13, Twister, Titanic and the remake of Mighty Joe Young. One of my favourite Bill Paxton films is A Simple Plan directed by Sam Raimi, hey Bill even made Spy Kids 2 and Thunderbirds worth watching. Bill Paxton has done his fair share of jobs in the industry, he met James Cameron whilst he was working as a set decorator on Galaxy of Terror and he's even art directed on some 70's porn. I love his line from Weird Science which I have been known to quote "I'm gonna tell Mom and Dad everything. I'm even considering makin' up some shit!"
Happy Birthday Bill and "That's it man, game over man, game over! "
