WILLIAM FORSYTHE (born June 7th, 1955) is a dynamically entertaining actor with piercing eyes and a superb talent for playing some truly unlikable and downright nasty characters that dominate the films in which he appears. If you're cast as the hero against Forsythe's villain, then you have your work cut out for you, as Forsthye's raw energy and menace on screen is second to none. He started out in a few minor film roles and guest appearances in high-rated TV shows including "CHiPs" (1977), "Hill Street Blues" (1981) and "T.J. Hooker" (1982). He quickly moved into high-quality feature films, including playing a small-time hoodlum in "Once Upon a Time in America" (1984), a hilariously funny performance as a bumbling jail escapee alongside John Goodman in the knockout "Raising Arizona" (1987) and as a renegade soldier in "Extreme Prejudice" (1987). The energetic Forsythe portrayed comic book villain 'Flattop' in "Dick Tracy" (1990), was foolish enough to tangle with vengeful cop Steven Seagal in the hyper-violent "Out for Justice" (1991) and locked horns with ex-NFL linebacker Brian Bosworth in the biker action film "Stone Cold" (1991). With his expertise in playing icy villains, Forsythe was perfect to portray Prohibition mobster Al Capone in the short-lived '90s revival of the classic '60s crime show, "The Untouchables" (1993), and he continued the motif of playing edgy, nefarious individuals in the thought-provoking "The Waterdance" (1992), the oily film noir piece "Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead" (1995), as real-life mobster Sammy Gravano, aka 'The Bull,' in "Gotti" (1996) and supporting another ex-NFL player's foray into film acting, when L.A. Raider Howie Long debuted in "Firestorm" (1998). Forsythe has remained perpetually busy in the new century with a plethora of feature film, telemovie and TV series appearances (where he has recently portrayed recurring characters in critically acclaimed shows like Boardwalk Empire, Justified and John Doe) and has developed a minor cult following amongst film fans for his attention grabbing dramatic skills in "City by the Sea" (2002), "The Devil's Rejects" (2005) and "Halloween" (2007).
THE DEVIL’S REJECTS is a 2005 American horror film written, produced and directed by Rob Zombie, and the sequel to his 2003 film “House of 1000 Corpses.” The film is centered on the run of three members of the psychopathic antagonist family from the previous film, now seen as villainous protagonists, with Sid Haig, Bill Moseley and Zombie's wife Sheri Moon Zombie reprising their roles, with Leslie Easterbrook replacing Karen Black as the matriarch. The film was released on July 22nd, 2005 to minor commercial success and mixed, but mostly positive reviews over its predecessor. At the time of release and in the years since, the film has garnered a cult following.
