IMDB would have you believe that Billy Zane shaves his head for aerodynamics in the swimming pool, but we all know that’s not true. It’s our hearts he slips into so effortlessly, and maybe your girlfriend’s vagina, and he does it with a mischievous grin, a dastardly glimmer in his eyes, and yes, that frequently shaven head of his. He’s a memorable actor in every one of his films and often the best thing about many of them too… mostly the direct to DVD ones. Speaking of which, his latest film is the third sequel in the Sniper franchise and the first to see him reprise his role from the original.
Sniper: Reloaded hit shelves this week, and we’ve got a free DVD for one lucky winner. How can you win? Simple… tell us your favorite Billy Zane performance in the comment section below. I know what you’re thinking. Narrow Zane’s many brilliant performances down to just one?!? But remember, if this was easy everyone would have a chance at winning. So tell us which role of his thrills you the most, and to make things even tougher (and to make sure you’re still reading) I’m going to ban the best answer from consideration. Dead Calm is that answer, and it will not be accepted below.
As always the contest is open to US residents only ages 18 and up. Be sure the email address associated with your comment is correct as that’s how we’ll notify the winner. Seriously… we continue to get multiple entries with nothing but an IP address. Contest ends May 3rd! Good luck!
The official synopsis and trailer are below.
While working with the UN Forces in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Marine Sgt. Brandon Beckett (Chad Michael Collins), son of renowned sniper Thomas Beckett, receives orders to rescue a European farmer trapped in the middle of hostile rebel territory. When he and his men arrive at the farm, a mysterious sniper ambushes them, wounding Beckett and killing everyone else. With the help of his father’s former protégé, sniper instructor Richard Miller (Billy Zane), Beckett must learn to think like a sniper to track down the assassin before the sniper returns to finish the job.”
