Billy Zane
as Marshall

William George Zane Jr., better known as Billy Zane, was born on February 24, 1966, in Chicago, Illinois.  Billy was bitten by the acting bug early on.  In his early teens, he attended Harand Camp of the Theatre Arts in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. In 1982, he attended the American School in Switzerland.  Soon after graduating high school, Billy decided to venture out to California to try his hand at acting.

Within three weeks, he won his very first big screen role in Back to the Future, playing the part of Match, one of Biff’s thugs. He would later reprise that role for the sequel. Then after a small role in the film Critters, he landed starring roles in several television movies. In 1996, Billy starred in The Phantom and in 1997 as Cal Hockley in the billion dollar grossing Titanic.

Peter Greene
as Peter Krebbs

Peter Greene rapidly established himself as the screen villain of the 1990s with a host of characterizations in both dark melodramas and spry comedies. His pale-faced image was forever emblazoned in the consciousness of moviegoers who saw him as Zed, the security guard playing “eerie, meenie, moe” while sodomizing Ving Rhames in Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction.

Greene had made his first feature film in a starring role for neophyte writer-director Nick Gomez in Laws of Gravity (1992) in which he was a petty criminal trying to sell some handguns and torn by loyalties. In 1993, he gave a haunting performance as a schizophrenic trying to meet his daughter in Clean, Shaven. Greene was a gang member in Judgment Night and Dorian Tyrel, the creepy nightclub owner whom Jim Carrey flushes down the toilet in The Mask.

Since the release of Pulp Fiction gave him high notice, Greene has played the fence in The Usual Suspects and a terrorist in Under Siege 2: Dark Territory and Halle Berry’s blackmailer in the thriller, The Rich Man’s Wife.
