Bill Pullman waited 21 long years to do it, but he finally got the right stage … and he delivered.
The actor was the commencement speaker at Warren Wilson College in Asheville, NC Saturday, and gave the graduates a blast of nostalgia by opening with a line from of his famous “Independence Day” speech … with a slight revision.
Bill made a political wisecrack, too — but it may have been an accident — when he explained the glory of playing President Whitmore. Good stuff.
As for why Pullman chose to speak at WWC … his sons are alumni.
