Billy Zane is a talented actor, known to ardent entertainment fans but now his entertainment profile is receiving a major boost from the recent airing of his 2009 movie "Blue Seduction" by the Lifetime Movie Network (Hollywood Greek Reporter - May 25). The movie put a spotlight on his very impressive dramatic acting range which has made him an actor in very high demand throughout his career, in particular the last two years as illustrated by his very busy film schedule in which he has played roles in ten projects.
Interestingly, the movie "Blue Seduction" was aired by Lifetime Movie Network shortly after a funny video posted by Zoolander director Ben Stiller of Billy Zane wearing a blonde wig and looking like Owen Wilson started receiving a large amount of attention from social media entertainment viewers who consider the hilarious clip confirmation of his feature role in the much anticipated "Zoolander 2".
For some entertainment observers and long-time fans of Billy Zane the attention is interesting, long overdue, but still much appreciated. His performance in "Blue Seduction" shows his extraordinary acting range and for some fans explains why he has never seemed to 'want' for work as he is consistently part of four to six projects per year. There is no substitute for superior acting talent and when an actor is as versatile as Billy Zane in that they can play a feature role in any type of big screen project whether it be comedy, action-adventure or dramatic, that actor will almost always be an in-demand commodity.
It is a testament to his superb acting range that the Lifetime Movie Network choose his "Blue Seduction" movie in which he was the lead actor to attract viewers but his sensational performance as a complicated multi-dimensional aging rock star makes it easy to understand because he is a captivating thespian whose dramatic acting range is second to none.
An actor who over the next two years will be a regular presence on both the small and big screens of Hollywood, the ruggedly handsome Billy Zane.
