Director Drew Daywalt saw this reel and tweeted “@billoberstjr’s horror reel gives new meaning to the phrase let’s do lunch” before booking Bill as an 18th-century German orc-hunter (which led to a subsequent role on MTV’s Death Valley.)
Director Gabriel Sabloff saw it and booked him as a demon who torments Robert Loggia (which led to Loggia’s comment to Bill, “You scare the shit out of me.”)
“I book a lot of work from that reel,” says Oberst. “I was lucky to have some great directors and scene partners in the projects represented on it. And I guess the bloody wifebeater helped too.”
Films represented in the reel include The Devil Within and Dismal. To read what Executive Producer Bo Buckley says about working with Bill on Dismal click here.
