"The first time I saw Paxton I actually didn't like him. In all fairness though it was the character and not the actor (Chet in Weird Science) that I didn't care for... but we weren't supposed to, right? He's come a long way since those days yet it blows my mind that his rating onsite here is only 6.4! WTF!?!? Favorite roles: Pvt. Hudson in Aliens Severen in Near Dark Jerry Lambert in Predator 2 Bill Harding in Twister"

"Need a good character actor to die painfully in one of your movies? Look no further than the amazing Bill Paxton! He appeared in The Terminator, Aliens, Near Dark, Predator 2, Navy Seals, and Apollo 13. More recently, he starred in the television series Big Love. "
