Bill Paxton was never nominated for an Oscar and was frequently mixed up with Bill Pullman, yet his passing on Feb. 26 at age 61 evoked tributes to one of the great resumes of the last 30+ years. From his bit parts in films like The Terminator to his last starring role on CBS's Training Day reboot, Paxton uplifted and took part in some of the most beloved projects of the last three decades.

While Paxton was most often described as a character actor, he wore many hats over his career, and never stopped adding to them right up to the end. This list showcases the almost endless highlights of his resume, and all the different ways he made his mark as one of the industry's most reliable figures.
