The special thing about Bill is, I have never heard anyone that knew him, from before his success or during it, that ever had anything but great things to say about him.
Bill had moved out to Santa Monica to be an "actor". Rest in Peace. You will be missed but never forgotten. It blew my mind. Wow.
The pair went on to play brothers in the Western flick, Frank & Jesse.
Bell, who still lives in Perry County, was cast in the movie playing Paxton's girlfriend. He's one of the reasons I moved out of L.A. because I saw a really similar marriage, a really solid man who is building a life not completely centered around the business in spite of the fact that he grew up in the business. The actor who has six Golden Globe Award nominations in his Hollywood resume confirmed that Bill Paxton always went out of his way to help him during the course of his career. He came up with the exact aftershave JFK wore and sent it over to me. Another time, Paxton had called up Rob and told him to expect a call from James Cameron over one of his scripts that he had submitted.
I have so many great memories of Bill. If it was my mother's funeral, Bill's there.

The world has been mourning the loss of actor Bill Paxton since his sudden passing on February 25.
The actor passed away over the weekend from heart surgery complications, with his untimely death coming four episodes into the run of what will be his last series, CBS's Training Day.
The actor recounted how he first met Paxton in the early '90s on the set of The Dark Backward, and was impressed with the larger-than-life acting choices Paxton made during filming. "Twister. Titanic. Apollo 13". The box office success of the Titanic would remain untouched for the next decade. Truly an wonderful person, who literally followed his dream, and never gave up. He was billed to return in the sequel.
For now, however, let's take a quick look at some of his most beloved roles in sci-fi, horror and related genres and pay tribute to this fine actor and gentleman who was taken from us far too soon.
