Movies that William B. Davis acted in

by TheBlueHairedLawyer | created - 24 Dec 2014 | updated - 25 Dec 2014 | Public

William B. Davis is my favorite actor, definitely the best actor I've ever seen and probably known best for his role as the antagonist of The X-Files (the Cigarette Smoking Man). So, here's a list of some of the movies he's acted in, although some of them are hard to come across, especially the 1990's TV movies.
