Oldest of three children, Bill “BAG” (Balding Asian Guy) Butt appeared out of nowhere one day crying in the trash bin out back, according to his mom. Always the black sheep of the family, He is taller, dam good looking, fantastic sense of humor, cool as an iceberg, and a troublemaker, according to his mom.
Bill was literally born into the film business and that is no joke! His dad was a producer, director, and the family owns a cinema. Bill moved to Vancouver, British Columbia Canada in 1970 because dad believed Canada had promise and that learning English would improve their future. High school years in Brentwood College School, and four years in Queen’s University finally made BAG into a man. Years of working in retail, own two stores, “Hot in the City” in Toronto and “Cartoon Corner” in Vancouver.
Subsequent to entering the real estate and property management around 1996, here is where BAG’s story really starts. June 1997, trying to rent an office downtown, Bill got a call about the unit. It was “Keystone Extras” wanting some office space. Bill asked them “What do you guys do?” and the answer was “We represent actors and extras.” SHAZAM, a star is born! Keystone Extras rented the office and BAG joined their roster. It has been 15 years and BAG has enjoyed just about every second of it!
