Interesting Facts

#Fact

2Announced his campaign for the U.S. Senate seat held by Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as the Libertarian Party candidate. [June 2008]
3On June 18, 2003, Sonny Landham held a press conference at the Kentucky State Capital, in Frankfort to announce his withdrawal from the campaign of Governor of Kentucky. [June 2003]
4After having done the character in the now famous '48Hrs' as "Billy Bear", he has had many roles where he is either called "Billy" or "Bear" or both. In a 1985 Hardcastle and McCormick episode 'You Don't Hear the One That Gets You' (1985) as Sheriff Billy Blackstone. In 1987's Predator as 'Billy', and in a 1996 movie "Billy Lone Bear" as Billy Lone Bear. And in his last known appearance as 'Chief Bear' in 2009's Mental Scars (video).
5He spent three years in the army.
6He is a descendant of the Cherokee and Seminole Nations.
7Sonny Landham has produced, directed, and moderated a political education DVD which will be on the market Spring 2006. He is currently busy at work as President of the Sonny Landham Foundation, and making speeches across the country.
8His big break in movies came, when one of Hollywood's all-time great directors, Walter Hill, cast him as Billy Bear in 48hrs. The movie offers started coming fast and furious, among them, Predator, Fleshburn, Firewalker, and many others plus TV offers.
9Sonny became known as a filmmaker. He produced movies, directed movies, wrote movie scripts, and even became a published author with his book Total Man, but Sonny's main passion is still golf.
10On 18th June 2003, he held a press conference at the Kentucky State Capital, in Frankfort to announce his withdrawal as an independent candidate for governor of the state of Kentucky. This was done with the advice of campaign consultants who determined that the Landham campaign was 6 months behind schedule and lacking the funds to run a successful campaign.
11During the filming of Predator (1987) a bodyguard was hired, not for his personal protection, but because the film's insurance company worried for the safety of the cast with him around.
12He tried to sue some local TV stations who showed clips of his movies during news broadcasts without paying him. The lawsuits were settled.
13Former 1970s porn star.

#Quote
1[on his appearance in porn films] If I was going to do it now - knowing that I'm going to have four children, knowing that I was going to run for office - no, I wouldn't make that choice. But at the time I made the choice of getting a paycheck, staying alive for your big break.
