    Wow. Not the actor with the greatest chops, but definitely one of the busiest actors out there over the last couple decades.

    I actually think Bill Paxton is a really good actor he may not have leading man charisma but I thought as a character actor he was quite good he played a variety of roles and found him believable in every one of them(that I've seen so far anyways)

    As a Titanic buff, I'll always remember him most from Titanic. He seemed to be a genuine Titanic buff and was the narrator of James Cameron's Ghosts of the Abyss film where Cameron returned to the vessel and made unparalleled interior discoveries in the wreck.

    RIP

    Paxton saw JFK before the assassination. That picture was taken in Fort Worth, where JFK gave a speech outside a hotel and then had breakfast at the Chamber of Commerce before heading to Dallas. Paxton was in the crowd when JFK gave his impromptu speech outside the hotel.

    Out of all the numerous movies he has been in, the one line I think of whenever I see him is: "You're stewed, Buttwad!"
