Five Favourite Films with Bill Pullman
Few can forget Bill Pullman's rousing speech as the US president in Independence Day, but it's only one of a long string of vast and diverse roles that have seen him cast as romantic lead, action hero, comedy star and dark villain. In more than twenty years of screen acting he's defined himself as a hard-working, engaging talent. Of his five favourite films, Pullman says his choices depend on mood and context. "I always feel like there are a lot of different types of favourites," he tells RT. "there are some that I look to for interesting things, some that I look to for acting things, others that I watch again and a again. I don't know if this is in any sort of order!"
