William "Bill" Paxton (born May 17, 1955) is an American actor and film director who played Private Hudson in the 1986 film Aliens and Jerry in the 1990 film Predator 2. He later lent his likeness to the Hudson character in the 2013 video game Aliens: Colonial Marines, although he did not provide the character's voice in this appearance. Other notable films Paxton has appeared in include Near Dark (1987), Tombstone (1993), True Lies (1994), Apollo 13 (1995) and Titanic (1997).

Paxton has been nominated for four Golden Globes and an Emmy. For his role in Aliens, he won a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actor. He is often said to be one of two actors (the other being Lance Henriksen) who have been killed on-screen by an Alien, a Predator and a Terminator. However, some argue that Paxton's character in The Terminator was not definitively killed.

TriviaEdit

  • Paxton was approached by the Brothers Strause for the role of the chef in Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem, but ultimately he did not appear. Had he accepted the role, he would have held the remarkable distinction of appearing in the second movie of the Alien series, the second movie of the Predator series and the second movie of the Alien vs. Predator series. He also would have been the only actor to appear in all three series.
