What happened to Bill Pullman?

He was a borderline star in the mid 90's with Independence Day and the Last Seduction.


What happened to him?


I think he did one movie in a supporting role in Nurse Betty.

Doesn't look like he has been in anything high profile, but according to IMDB he has been and is still busy.

What happened? He's been busy with a lot of things, including 3 or 4 movies currently in post-production, directing a few TV things, and he spent 8 months in 2002 on Broadway starring in Edward Albee's Tony Award and Pulitzer-prize winning play The Goat.

Sometimes actors want to act, not just have their faces splashed all over the multiplex.

When people finally realized he was the same person as Bill Paxton, both Bills disappeared in a puff of logic.

movies doesn't mean an actor moved off the face of the planet.


Maybe broaden your horizons.
Wow, way to bite someone's head off for no particular reason. Maybe you could broaden your horizons to eliminate random rudeness, buddy.
