Twilight Saga's Strict Cop Daddy Billy Burke
Along with millions of fans going crazy about the Twilight Saga comes another thing to be obsessed of. Some of the Twilight Saga's cast are really going gaga over one of the most favorite casino game, Poker.

In my last post, I featured Kellan Lutz or Emmett Cullen in the movie. I also presented a link in my post where you can find the other Twilight Saga Cast like Peter Facinelli and Robert Pattinson. Now I want to introduce you to another Twilight Saga cast that also have a craving for Poker.

Eventhough his first career choice was becoming a rock star. William Albert 'Billy' Burke has already made a name for himself in the silver screen long before he landed the part of Officer Charlie Swan in the 2008 movie Twilight. Some of his TV credits includes roles in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (Second Skin), Party Of Five, Gilmore Girls, Karen Sisco, Fringe, Monk and The Closer. He also plays Detective Eric Box in the movie Untraceable.

In 2008, he appeared in the movie Twilight, based on Stephanie Meyer's best selling novel, playing the role of Bella's Cop Father: Charlie Swan.

“I started off my career being the bad boyfriend running around with the gun, and now I'm officially old enough to play a 17-year-old's father.” he said on playing the father of Kristen Stewart in "Twilight".

"I tend to gravitate towards characters that carry their damage in their hip pocket," he told the fan site Twilight Lexicon in 2008.

One of Billy's favorite up-and-coming directors is Catherine Hardwicke who made the films Thirteen, Lords of Dogtown and Twilight.
