About Bill:
CNN calls him “an emerging horror icon.” Famous Monsters Magazine says he’s “the Kevin Bacon of horror.” Yet just a few years ago, he was best known for playing Jesus of Nazareth and Mark Twain on stage. Now, he may be one of the hardest-working actors in Hollywood, with more than 114 film and TV credits to his name. Thanks to his unique look and personal branding efforts, he’s become the go-to guy for horror villain roles.
