>I always enjoyed Bill's characterizations in just about everything he did. Dude's sense of humor really came through on screen.

imo Best description that someone mentioned today regarding his acting talents. "....his acting skills are talented enough to make a crappy movie still worth watching....no matter what..." And that was meant to be a compliment to Bill's work and acting....not a sarcastic comment.


I didn't know both "Bills" (both actors) were involved with the medley "Fish Heads". Paxton did the acting while Mumy co-wrote the Fish Heads medley and sent it in to Dr. Demento. I never knew about that bit of entertainment trivia myself.
