A Page All About Bill Moseley
I fell in love with one performance in 2005, and only one. And that was Bill Moseley's performance in the Rob Zombie film The Devil's Rejects. While I enjoyed Moseley's performance in House of 1000 Corpses, I don't think he played that role with the same panache that he did when he took up the mantle of Otis again in the sequel this year. So it would be silly to have a Rob Zombie movie site without a page dedicated to Bill Moseley.
Bill Moseley as Otis Driftwood
The Devil's Rejects and House of 1000 Corpses are about the Firefly family, all of whom take their names from characters in Marx Brothers movies. Bill Moseley portrays Otis Driftwood, and in the first film, he's a total psycho with an almost complete lack of normal behavior. He's also an albino.
In The Devil's Rejects, he's still a psycho, but he's a well-spoken and comical psycho played with vigor and grace in a role that has inspired fans to start an independent campaign to get Moseley a best supporting actor nomination. And somehow Otis Driftwood is no longer an albino.
Bill Moseley Biography
Bill Moseley was born November 11, 1951 in Stanford, Connecticut. The first big movie role he had was as Chop-Top in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 in 1986. He had a number of small parts in minor horror films and other smaller movies until he hit the jackpot with House of 1000 Corpses. He reprised his role in that film in 2005 in the popular The Devil's Rejects, a sequel to House of 1000 Corpses. His performance in that film inspired an independent movement to get Moseley a Best Supporting Actor nomination.
In real life, when he's not wearing scary movie makeup, BIll Moseley is actually a strikingly handsome actor with a resemblance to George Clooney and/or Billy Bob Thornton.
Bill Moseley has a degree in English from Yale.
Bill Moseley Filmography
Bill Moseley has been featured in the following films:
Bill Moseley in Halloween
Rob Zombie did give Bill Moseley a small role in his Halloween remake in 2007. He plays one of the security guards in charge of transporting Michael Myers.
Bill Moseley as "Chop Top"
Even though I'll always remember Bill Moseley most vividly for his role in The Devil's Rejects, his most famous role to date was as "Chop Top" in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. Bill Moseley as Chop Top was a member of the deranged psychotic killer Sawyer family. It's not hard to see how Rob Zombie would get the idea to cast Bill Moseley as another deranged psycho killer in The Devil's Rejects, is it?
Bill Moseley in Repo! The Genetic Opera
More recently, Bill Moseley appeared in Repo! The Genetic Opera. In that movie he plays Luigi Largo, a homicidal psychopath. (Imagine that.) If you ever wanted to see Bill Mosely in an ascot, then Repo! The Genetic Opera is the movie for you.
