Netflix Movies Starring William Tepper

William Tepper (aka Billy Tepper) was born in The Bronx and studied filmmaking at UCLA Film School where his first film, Evidence Of Tradition, was voted Best Film of the Year. His Hollywood career began at age 20, when his first screenplay won the prestigious Samuel Goldwyn Writing Award. Fresh out of film school, Tepper convinced his new agents at ICM to get him an interview with director Jack Nicholson who was looking for an actor to star in Drive, He Said, Nicholson's first directorial effort. Nicholson felt that with Tepper he had found his actor, telling producer Bert Schneider, who was against casting him, that Tepper was "the best actor of his generation." After representing the U.S. at the Cannes Film Festival, Drive, He Said went on to become a cult favorite as the best of the films depicting the social unrest of the time. Read more on iMDB
