1. I was just thinking, the actor Billy Zane has been in on the joke his whole career. Zane:
  2. Was a parody of a man spurned
    Static
    in TITANIC.
  3. A relatively unthreatening psycho villain
    Static
    In DEAD CALM.
  4. A laughable henchman
    Static
    In the BACK TO THE FUTURE movies.
  5. A joke of a film noir anti-hero
    Static
    In I WOKE UP EARLY THE DAY I DIED (based on an unfilmed Ed Wood script! Oh, the 90s . . .).
  6. A winking Satan
    Static
    In DEMON KNIGHT. Underrated!
  7. A sniper who gets no respect despite being good at snipping.
    Static
    In SNIPER.
  8. Has worn wigs throughout his career, yet is proudly bald in real life. It's like he knows we know.
    Static
    Similar to frequently changing one's name on social media while making almost no effort to alter one's identity.
  9. Played himself, so reduced in Hollywood, he can only announce male model walk-offs.
    Static
    In ZOOLANDER.
  10. And yet, he's worked steadily the whole time. He always seems like he's having fun in whatever gas station burrito of a movie he's in this week.
    I should be so lucky.
  11. May you smile through your 'stache at all life's challenges.

    Regards, Billy Zane. (For now.)
