Billy Bob's Filmography
DON'T LOOK BACK (1996)
Billy Bob Thornton and
MARSHALL: I can't say I'm always proud
of it, but we're in the music business.
Eric Stoltz plays Jesse Parrish, a cokehead drifter who lives on the fringes of
Hollywood and makes off with the proceeds of a botched drug deal. The dealers, lead by the surly and headache-prone Marshall
(Billy Bob), pursue
Jesse back to his hometown of Galveston, Texas. Jesse reunites with his boyhood pals in the hopes that they can help him
elude Marshall and his gang. As all the characters converge for
a final showdown, a hurricane kicks in from the Gulf of
Mexico to underscore the rage and turbulence of this violent
tale of friendship and loyalty.
What Billy Bob Gets To Do
Suffering from alternating bouts of killer migraine and volcanic
displays of violence, Marshall shares ONE FALSE
Malcolm's penchant for snacking on cheese off the point of a
very sharp knife. When he isn't dealing drugs, Marshall
excels at dealing pain, be it with with a knife, a pool cue, or the
sharp toe of his cowboy boot. Dig how Marshall pours on the charm to a little old lady
(played by Ja'net DuBois) that he'd just as soon kill as pump for information.
Tom Epperson and Billy Bob wrote this thriller,
originally titled THE GULF, which debuted on HBO.
Several of Billy Bob's recurring on-screen pals appear: Dwight Yoakam,
Mickey Jones, Jim Metzler, as well as Peter Fonda, Annabeth Gish,
John Corbett, M.C. Gainey, Josh Hamilton, and a terrific and
tragic turn by Amanda Plummer.
