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...
...and when the conversation inevitably turned to Titanic, he defended human garbage can Cal Hockley.
Apparently, Cal wasn't the real villain of Titanic.
Sure, OK, the iceberg was not great, but we can all agree that Cal was worse.
Come on, remember when he used that kid to get on a lifeboat?
Remember when he called Rose a whore?
Remember his atrocious pinkie ring?!
But fans still give Billy a hard time about how much of a garbage can Cal was.
Seriously, though. Cal couldn't hit water if he fell out of a fucking boat.
But worst of all, Billy thinks CAL SHOULD HAVE ENDED UP WITH ROSE.
CAL BELONGS RIGHT WHERE HE IS: On Villains Wikia, listed as "Evil-doer."
