Before They Were Stars: Billy Bob Thornton in “Hunter’s Blood”

I know this might sound like a hell of an acting stretch, but in his very first film, Billy Bob Thornton played… a redneck named Billy Bob! Thornton’s screen debut was a small role in a 1986 exploitation flick called Hunter’s Blood, a Deliverance knock-off about a group of city folks running into trouble with inbred psycho rednecks while on a hunting trip. Billy Bob is the guy in the red cap standing in the background of the scene inside this bar, but his big moment comes at 5:45 of this clip when he falls out of the back of a pickup truck during a high-speed chase.
