The Cajun trapper that shoots Powers Boothe and then gets a very clumsy vasectomy from him, is played by Sonny Landham. Landham has worked with Walter Hill in "The Warriors" in which he had a small role as a police officer, and "48hrs" in which he played "Billy Bear" who was James Remars partner in crime. He is probably best known for his portrayal of "Billy" (he seems to like that name?) in "Predator". Landham also ran unsuccessfully for Governor of Kentucky in 2002.
