Thank you so much for passing along the request, Berengaria!

I love music, and I love Roswell and the music in Roswell!

People on this board and on other boards have been identifying songs and music in Roswell since it first aired. So many songs I never knew about were first introduced to me and to other people on Roswell.

Some internet sites, as well as some message boards, continue to identify and list Roswell songs, which is why people would love to know all the songs that William Sadler sang and performed, too.

Songs sung by Majandra Defino, who played Maria, and songs sung and performed by John Doe, who played Liz’s father, have been identified, as well as some of the songs sung and performed by William Sadler. It would be wonderful to know all the songs he sang and performed in Roswell!

I would agree with you that the writers seemed to lose their way as the series progressed. I thought the whole first year was as good as a series could get. Year 2 had some interesting eoisodes but I think that is where I thought they started using Jim Valenti more as "filler" than as the really important character that I had always seen him as. By Year 3, it was like he was just comic relief for the writers. Although the last episode had a very touching scene where Jim says good-by to his son. That was the Valenti of old and stands out in my mind to this day.

Bill just posted at his Official site:

Hey cool, this board is still active. I forgot all about it until just now when going through old email and I found Ber's notice about it.

How is everyone?

I'm good...and apparently,so is Bill. He just posted on his Official site this message to the troops:

Hey Kids!

Just wanted to let you know that I'm in Shreveport, Louisiana shooting another film with director Frank Darabont. It's called The Mist and like Shawshank and the Green Mile, it too is a Stephen King story. One stormy night a top secret military research project goes horribly wrong and a thick fog starts moving across rural New England swallowing up everything in it's path. Trap lots of wonderful characters in the local grocery store, add some really nasty critters that live in the mist so no one's going anywhere, and you've got the makings of a great, scary night at the movies.

We're only on day two of the shoot but already I've been knocked out by the special effects. I can't give away much more without spoiling it for you but you can always read the original story if you can't wait. I play "Jim Grondin." Mama C. says maybe we'll do a blog. (whatever that is). I'm up for it if there's interest. I'll be here until March 28th staying at a casino where it seems every man woman and child smokes and believe it or not, there's no high-speed internet. You heard me. I have to sit on the sound stage where they have wireless. Anyway, that's about all the news for now. Wish me luck ya'll.

Hey wasn't The Blog a horror film from the fifties starring Steve McQueen?

sounds awesome!

The Blob was indeed a Steve McQueen flick... it was filmed not too far from where I grew up.

Louisiana looks like New England and vice versa? Well, I guess with enough set dressing and avoiding shots of Mangrove swamps and Spanish moss, anything is possible. My cousin, who lives in Wilmington, NC, where Dawson's Creek was filmed, thought otherwise about NC passing for Massachusetts but I digress.

I love The Shawshank Redemption. That's truly great film making there.

Thought you might want to visit one of my favorite movie/TV review sites

-www.pajiba.com-

includes the marvellous Bill Sadler in its
Salute to Great Character Actors-The Man Who Wasn't There
(The link is about one-third down the page)

WS's review is entitled:
"William Sadler-The All American".

This is a very, very nice tribute to Bill. Not only is Roswell mentioned,
the picture is a scene from Roswell.

Thought I'd pass this on.

Here is the atricle about Will Sadler.

William Sadler — The All-American


Everybody knows William Sadler, but they don’t know it. And it’s not his portrayal of Death in Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey that’s endeared him to us, either. No, Sadler is best known as Heywood in The Shawshank Redemption, which is easily Frank Darabont’s best Depression-era movie set in a prison and based on a Stephen King story. Sadler’s from New York, but he’s got this corn-fed Midwestern vibe that makes him the perfect Everyman, believable as everything from a villain (Die Hard 2) to law enforcement (“Roswell”) to an ordinary, nerdy father (“Wonderfalls”). He’s perfect as Heywood, a mix of protective aggression and surprising sweetness and humor. He works a slow transformation in Shawshank, going from one of the inmates who mock Andy Dufresne to eventually warming to him and later sharing warmly in the stories of the time they served together. Sadler keeps working because he’s an easily accessible, interchangeable American man, and he makes it look easy.

Indeed. I don't know which I saw first, Roswell or TSR but a light bulb went off when I saw Bill Sadler. Actually, I think I probably knew him from Roswell first and then recognized him in TSR even if I might have seen TSR first. The first time I saw TSR he was just another actor to me--it was Roswell that made me take notice of him in other things. TSR is one of my all-time favorite films. I had no idea he played Death in Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey but that is not one of my all-time favorite films so I've never watched it all the way through. Didn't know he was in DH2 either but I guess that's the point they're making. Love Wonderfalls--too bad it had such a short run.

I thought I would move this thread back to page one by list one of my favorite J.V scenes from Roswell.......in season one....sitting on the couch eating ice cream talking to Kyle about his relationship with Liz.

Have you all been wondering what Bill is up to these days? I know you are...so here's what he has to say about his new role in the Tom Hanks/Steven Spielberg mini-series "Pacific" being made for HBO

From a message from Bill Sadler who is currently in Australia filming :

I'm going to play "Chesty" Puller the most decorated and most famous Marine that ever lived in the 10 part HBO series Pacific. I'm told that Marines everywhere even now, say goodnight to Chesty before they turn in. Pacific (the name may change) comes out in 2009 so set your VCRs. ... The nice thing about this guy is that when he's on, he's the center of the scene.
