Starlog Archives: William Atherton
William Atherton was never a household name, but you would recognize him instantly if you saw him. In the 80’s, he made a career of playing stuck-up jerks in movies like Ghostbusters, Die Hard and Real Genius. The popularity of those first two movies lead to Atherton being typecast as the guy the audience wanted to punch in the face. The September 1996 issue of Movieline included an interview with the character actor as he was promoting his latest movie, Bio-Dome.
