In the original Terminator he was one of the 3 punks that had the misfortune to come into contact with him when he arrived in the past.

He was a pretty great actor in most things he did...if you haven't caught "A Simple Plan" yet I would make an effort because it is not a happy film but still pretty great.
He was really good in this, Billy Bob Thorton got nominated for a supporting actor academy award.
