He's been in a lot of movies, including a lot of TV.  You may not recognize him, but it would be unusual to say the least if you have never seen him.

I have to be a little redundant, and recommend this movie again. Paxton stars and directs.

Wikipedia:
Quote
Frailty is a 2001 American psychological thriller film, directed by and starring Bill Paxton, and co-starring Matthew McConaughey. It marks Paxton's directorial debut. The plot focuses on the strange relationship between two young boys and their fanatically religious father, who believes that he has been commanded by God to kill demons disguised as people.


Full movie on YouTube(The freeze-frame, that shows on this page, is from some other movie):


Bookmark the movie, and watch it soon, as it may not be up for long.

We 'new atheists' have a reputation for being militant, but make no mistake  we didn't start this war. If you want to place blame put it on the the religious zealots who have been poisoning the minds of the  young for a long long time."

I loved his movie, A Simple Plan,
That's an excellent movie that you don't hear people talk about much.  I started thinking it was one of those sleepers that only I was aware of.  If you want to commit a crime with your friends, make sure they are not idiots and imbeciles.  Otherwise, find some other stupid thing to do with your pointless life. 

This is a great movie if you like to tear out your hair and scream at the characters.  You desperately want to stop them from doing stupid things, but it's a movie, and you can't.  I've seen a few other movies that invite the same emotional frustration in me, but none as intense as A Simple Plan.  Somewhere in the movie, I'm always wishing the movie would be over so I could end my suffering, but I keep watching hoping a flicker of human intelligence will show up, and make things right.

That is how I felt as a kid, watching episodes of Gilligan's Island ;-)

It's hard to find anyone who's not an idiot or an imbecile.

The bad guys might spare the biggest fool, for entertainment value, so there is that.

It's from "Aliens".

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000200/

Ripley is the only character from 'Alien' etc I care about.  Well, Jonsie because I like cats and Newt because she SHOULD have survived  But they died.  But I understand about Newt because she would have been a drag on Ripley.
