12 Best Billy Zane Movies Apart from The Phantom

Billy Zane Movies

These 12 Billy Zane Movies are must-see films for everyone able to recognise the acting genius of the Greek-American star. How many Greek English speaking actors are there anyway? Hardly anyone. Billy Zane, whose family’s original surname was “Zanetakos”, that’s about it. John Stamos also springs to mind, but he’s better associated with being a television sitcom star.

Could Billy Zane actually be the Greek God of Acting? Only the future will tell.

1. Back to the Future (1985)

You might as well see Back to the Future II (1989) and Back to the Future III (1990) after the first movie. Pure genius.

2. Dead Calm (1989)

3. Going Overboard (1989)

In this movie Billy Zane plays the Greek God of the sea, King Neptune. This is Adam Sandler’s film debut. Voted one of the worst films of all time. How he got a Greek God to appear on this movie with a small film budget of only $200,000 is absolutely unbelievable. The films locations of Cancún, Benito Juárez, Quintana Roo, Mexico must have sweetened the deal.

Yeah sure, I’ll go on a holiday with you

4. Lake Consequence (1993)

5. Only You (1994)

It doesn’t get much more sleazy than this.


6. Tales of the Crypt: Demon Knight (1995)

Billy Zane is linked with the Greek island of Chios through his mother and Mani through his father.


7. Titanic (1997)

The movie, Titanic, must have inspired millions and millions of these type of poses.

8. Cleopatra (1999)


9. Zoolander (2001)

He’s a cool dude.

10. Invincible (2001)

I have to see this dark versus light warrior movie. You can watch the trailer of Invincible starring Billy Zane on the IMDb movie web page. Looks great.

11. Three (aka Survival Island) (2005)

Billy Zane met Kelly Brook while filming the thriller Survival Island (aka Three) in Eleuthera, Bahamas in 2004. They were engaged to be married in mid-2008. It’s no wonder. Kelly was crowned FHM’s Sexiest Woman In The World in 2005, and she’s also appeared in every FHM 100 Sexiest countdown list from 1998 to 2015.

Not sure what this video is supposed to suggest, but Kelly Brook definitely resembles Kelly LeBrock from Weird Science fame. I suppose the two beauties could easily be confused.


12. Fishtales (2007)

Kelly Brook also starred in this fantasy/romance movie with Billy Zane, which was filmed on the Greek island of Spetses. This movie must have been an awesome working holiday experience.

We salute you Billy Zane.
