Thanks to Pineappl92 for the heads up!


  1. i pictured billy with like gray hair but he looks good for the part as well.

  2. i think he looks great but he would look a little bit greater 🙂 with grey streaks in his hair and a little bit more average joe kind of look. 🙂 he looks almost too actory which i am sure the make up and stuff people will take care of 🙂 he is great

    He is much more majestic than I would have imagined Billy Black to be; he is still perfect for the role, regardless. I am so excited! :]

  4. WoW.. He was 98% of what i imagined he would look like. i did imagine him with grayer and longer hair, less buff, more wrinkles , and in a wheel chair. but i think that the make-up artists can pull that off. he’s perfect!!! i have complete faith in this guy. but… i mean…wow. i do hope that they make sequels to the movie. it just seems impossible that they would one make just ONE.

  5. I think he is y-u-m-my!

  6. ummmmmm…. sorry but that is not billy no offense to the guy i’m sure he’ll do a great job and all but…. Don’t you think that billy should be a little older you know wrinkly and wise looking with salt and pepper colored long hair and a little on the heavy side. I mean i know he’s active for a man in a wheel chair but still i’m not expecting him to be thin and muscular but you know maybe that’s just me and my imagination is way off…..

    i thought Billy would b a little older and kind of heavy, and i don’t think they’d take out the wheelchair, it’s 2 much of a big part, it’s part of the reason Bella got the old red chevy
