Let's have a Billy Zane double shot... I mean girls
from movies that star Billy Zane.
Scoop's notes: Billy Zane is quite young - he
turns 45 in a couple of weeks - but he already has more than 100 credits
at IMDb. He was in seven movies in 2009, another seven in 2010. IMDB says
he will be in 12 movies released this year!!! That's 26 films in three
years. Marlon Brando only made 39 in his entire life, spanning 51 years.
Zane is the new Eric Roberts. But
the old Eric Roberts ain't leaving the throne.
Roberts has about 200 credits, including 123 movies,
and he's not slowing down. IMDb lists him in 9 films with 2011 release
dates! He actually has more credits than Gerard Depardieu now, but
Depardieu still has him by a mile if we look at the movie category alone,
where the Flabby Franc has 164 credits.
I now return the mic to Johnny's:
Blue Seduction is a thriller about
a one time music star Mikey Taylor (Billy Zane), who is mounting a
comeback after falling prey to the usual trappings of fame. He hires a
singer for a studio session and a girl named Matty (Estella Warren)
arrives and blows Mikey and his crew away. And then all hell breaks loose
and Mikey's gonna fall off the wagon bad. First, Matty seduces him, then
she gets him back on the drinks and drugs and then Mikey begins to miss
important event with his long suffering wife (Jane Wheeler). When he
apparently hits bottom, Mikey desperately tries to get back in track, but
one final twist is in store. This film is so silly that it's perfect for
Billy Zane; dodgy wig, bizarre histronics and all. The film skirts the
edge of silliness and farce quite well and it's final twist is pretty
neat, so if you go in with lowered expectations, you'll probably have the
Warren film clips (almost no nudity; collages below)
The Hessen Affair
The Hessen Affair is a post WW2
set thriller about a group of soldiers taking over a castle in Germany.
One day, the crown jewels are discovered and instead of doing the right
thing, the colonel (Billy Zane) with the help of his female lieutenant (Lyne
Renée) and other soldiers decide to hide the treasure and then get it back
to the US and fence it. With a cunning plan to get the colonel and
liuetenant back the US to facilitate the fencing of the treasure, the
princess discovers the treasure missing and alerts the authorities. In the
US, the colonel and the lieutenant begin to have trouble when their fence
is murdered and the jewels are stolen. So, the colonel and the lieutenant
decide to go their own way to con the man who stole the treasure. An OK
little adventure thriller that is diverting, but nothing special, just as
most Billy Zane films seem to be.
