Theodore Billings performance as Biff in the Little Rock Community Theater production of Death of a Salesman received much attention, mostly for his decision to be the only one in the cast to use a British accent. He followed his dream to Hollywood, near the corner of Santa Monica and Western. It was a costume role. He played a giant bird, perhaps the feathered serpent, Quetzalcoatl or even the blackbird of death. I shall own this role, he thought to himself. The pizza guy would question his choice to yell at the cars using a British accent.
