CHICAGO, Ill. (FOX 32 News) -
From a villain in the past, to a thug in the future, to just playing himself in modern day - Billy Zane's career in Hollywood has spanned decades, making him one of the most recognizable faces on the silver screen.
Now, the Chicago native is returning home to star at Captain Von Trapp in the Lyric Opera's production of "The Sound of Music."
FOX 32's Jake Hamilton sat down to talk to Zane before rehearsal. He said that even if you have seen the movie 1,000 times, you've never seen anything like this before.
While most actors visiting Chicago may spend their time at the tourist hot spots, this Chicago native goes straight for the food.
You can enjoy Billy and the entire cast of "The Sound of Music at the Lyric Opera of Chicago later this month.
