    "Ode for Billy Zane"



    William George "Billy" Zane, Jr. (born February 24, 1966) is an American actor and producer. He is best known for playing Hughie in the thriller Dead Calm (1989), Kit Walker / The Phantom in the superhero film The Phantom (1996), Caledon Hockley in the epic romantic disaster film Titanic (1997), and for his television role as John Wheeler in the serial drama series Twin Peaks.

    His other film credits include roles in the science fiction comedies Back to the Future (1985) and Back to the Future Part II (1989), the Western film Tombstone (1993), the horror film Demon Knight (1995), and the comedy-drama CQ (2001).

    Zane was born in Chicago, Illinois, to Thalia and William George Zane, Sr., both of whom were amateur actors and founders of a school for medical technicians.[1][2] His parents are both of Greek descent (from Chios through his mother and Mani through his father), and his family's original surname, "Zanikopoulos", was anglicized to "Zane" by his parents, who also raised him Greek Orthodox.[3][4][5][6] He has an older sister, Lisa Zane, who is an actress and singer.[citation needed]

    After completing a year abroad in Switzerland at The American School in Switzerland (TASIS), Zane graduated from Francis W. Parker School and attended Harand Camp of the Theater Arts, located in Evanston, Illinois.

    20 years ago he stared in a big budget summer movie called The Phantom and it bombed. Had it been a big hit he would have been a bigger star. Its cruel how these things work out.

    He got a raw deal in Titanic. He was being gracious enough to marry that chubby broad, than she goes and cheats on him. He was better off w/o her. She proved to be a whacky chick at the end of the movie.

    Let alone he had to deal with her bossy, greedy mom as well? He dodged a massive bullet.

    He was great in a movie that always seems to be on Showtime that nobody ever talks about (but should). Survival Island.

    If i was the Granddaughter I would have pushed Old Rose into the chilly North Atlantic. First you find out she is fawning over some street kid her whole life, totally forgetting about her husband. Than the old broad throws this priceless stone in the water.

    Billy Zane stars in the Amazon show Mad Dogs. It's actually a real fun show. Only going to be 1 season.
