Where Is Billy From 'Scream' Today? Skeet Ulrich Isn't So Scary Anymore

Sorry, everyone who miraculously missed out on viewing the awesomely meta 1996 slasher flick Scream — I'm about to spoil the ending for you. Really, viewers should have seen it coming right from the moment one of the killers crawled through our heroine's bedroom window. Anyone who thought that Billy from Scream might be an innocent victim of the Ghostface killer's murder spree was clearly watching the wrong movie. You don't trust the boyfriends in horror flicks, especially when they are as creepy or use as much hair gel as Billy does. Sidney's boyfriend ended up being one hell of a slasher villain, and while I didn't trust him from the moment he pressured Sidney to go all the way, I did appreciate actor Skeet Ulrich's commitment to playing such a slimebacll. Bravo, Ulrich — you're officially the cause of my movie trust issues.

Ulrich was a pretty big deal in the '90s, but he became more than just a pretty, serial killer-y face after his turn in Scream was over. (Guys like that definitely don't make the sequel — unless he can rise from the dead for a potential Scream 5, of course.) So what has Ulrich been up to since his villainous days? Here's where you may have seen him.

As Good As It Gets (1997)

You wouldn't exactly describe Scream as the "feel-good movie of the year," but you might describe this Jack Nicholson vehicle as that. Ulrich played Vincent in this iconic '90s movie, proving he can do more than make a bunch of people uncomfortable when he's onscreen.

Chill Factor (1999)

Ulrich took a completely different route with his role in Chill Factor, opposite Cuba Gooding Jr. This action-comedy starred Ulrich and Gooding as a convenience store clerk and an ice cream delivery men who must take a weapon of destruction to a military base before it blows up. Hijinks ensue.

Miracles (2003)

Though the series only listed for six episodes, Ulrich found a passionate fan base for this series, in which he stars as an investigator of modern miracles who finally finds one that cannot be explained by science.

Jericho (2006-2007)

Ulrich really solidified himself as a cult TV show darling with this series as Jake Green, who had to deal with the consequences of a nuclear bombing. Jake had a rocky past and needed to step up to protect a town in ruin. The series only lasted two seasons and 30 episodes, but its creators later added a comic book universe to expand the series after the show ended.

Law & Order: L.A. (2010-2011)

Unfortunately for Ulrich, not all Law & Order spinoffs last. Ulrich starred on this Los Angeles-based incarnation of the iconic Dick Wolf series, but unlike its once seemingly immortal predecessors, it was cancelled after just one season.

Ulrich is no longer the greased-up '90s villain he once was. Today, he is a family man with two kids and a dog whom he loves to post about on Instagram. Here's what he looks like today:
