He's admittedly neurotic as hell, but like many neurotic folks, he's also a great actor. He does amazing things with his eyes.

Yeah, he said that the character he played in "Bandits" was basically himself.

Sling Blade
A Simple Plan
Monster's Ball
U-Turn
Man Who Wasn't There

...all perfect.

Billy Bob rocks.

A friend of mine went to Austin a few weeks ago and BBT was there working on a movie. While my friend wanted to respect Billy Bob's privacy, he also wanted to say hi - so he did, and he said that Billy Bob was very VERY cordial and appreciative of the fans that approached him.

That stuff can get to anyone - you can get so much admiration and finally you just want some privacy. I can totally understand that. The fact that Billy Bob didn't shy away from the public and embraced them - spending 10 or 15 minutes talking with my friend. That's just stinking cool.

Heck, even I wouldn't talk to a stranger for 10 or 15 minutes.

Billy Bob rules.

One of the guys in JMJ's first film was Matt Damon's stand-in for 'All The Pretty Horses,' and he said Billy Bob is the nicest, most down to earth director you could imagine. He treated the entire crew, from the extras to the DP to the PAs with the same amount of respect and friendliness, and would take them all bowling. That made me like him even more. His album, however, wasn't exactly my cup of tea.

He also displayed a talent for Southern gothic yarn-spinning with The Gift. I like 'im.

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

Billy Bob Thornton Turns on Friday Night Lights
Source: Variety

Bad Santa star Billy Bob Thornton is in talks with Universal and Imagine to star in the Peter Berg-directed Friday Night Lights, an adaptation of the H.G. Bissinger book being produced by Brian Grazer.

Thornton would play the head coach of a high school gridiron team that is the obsession of the town's inhabitants. The book chronicles an entire season of the Permian High Panthers, a team whose success was inordinately important to the inhabitants of Odessa, Texas. The town was in severe economic despair, and the townsfolk looked to the team's success for inspiration each Friday night.

Grazer has been trying for 15 years to turn Bissinger's book into a film. He originally planned to make it with the late director Alan J. Pakula. Berg came aboard during the summer, after he directed The Rundown, and has done a rewrite of a script by David Aaron Cohen.

Um.... Peter Berg is no Alan Pakula.  :(

I can't wait to see Bad Santa.

He was really nice and engaging on the phone interview I (and about 20 other pushy college reporter-wannabes) had with him, didn't show a hint of annoyance at all, and it was a very annoying phone call, with all these kids asking mundane questions, and talking over each other. Still, he was calm the whole time and answered each question with humor and honesty. I think he said all he wanted for Christmas was a pencil and some soup.
