Bill Moseley as Otis DriftwoodA Page All About Bill Moseley

I fell in love with one performance this year, 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.
