Every hero needs a villain, or two. Luke had Darth. Indy had Belloq. Clark, Lex. Billy had Posner. Two of them, Stewart and Bernard.
David Roya played Bernard Posner to perfection. His portrayal was sympathetic and scary. You didn’t really know which way this character was going to go, until he went there. I didn’t know much about David, but found some interesting articles online. One at Confessions of a Pop Culture Addict in an article titled The Man Who Made Billy Jack Go Berserk: A Conversation with David Roya, had a lot of interesting stuff I didn’t know.
Billy Jack wouldn’t have been Billy Jack without David’s great performance. Thanks, David!
