Billy Zane Said His "Titanic" Character Should Have Ended Up With Rose

This blasphemy.

Posted on

Billy Zane has played many characters in his long career.

In 1996, he played the most underrated superhero of all time in The Phantom.

In 2001, he played Ben Stiller's concerned friend.

But he is probably forever and always emblazoned in your mind as Caledon Hockley, Rose's totally awful fiancé in Titanic who gave her that super heavy, impractical necklace that she later chucked off the side of a boat.

Well, Billy Zane stopped by Today to chat about his new Freeform show, Guilt...

Today / Via today.com

...and when the conversation inevitably turned to Titanic, he defended human garbage can Cal Hockley.

Today

Apparently, Cal wasn't the real villain of Titanic.

Today

Sure, OK, the iceberg was not great, but we can all agree that Cal was worse.

Paramount

Come on, remember when he used that kid to get on a lifeboat?

Paramount

Remember when he called Rose a whore?

Paramount

Remember his atrocious pinkie ring?!

Paramount

But fans still give Billy a hard time about how much of a garbage can Cal was.

Today

Seriously, though. Cal couldn't hit water if he fell out of a fucking boat.

Paramount

But worst of all, Billy thinks CAL SHOULD HAVE ENDED UP WITH ROSE.

Today

NO. NEVER.

Paramount

CAL BELONGS RIGHT WHERE HE IS: On Villains Wikia, listed as "Evil-doer."
