Well, it turns out that he has another talent that we all weren't aware of.
When you have been a huge star as long as he has, you pick up a ton of stories and recollections, and as it turns out, he is quite humorous when he tells these tales. At a recent public speaking event, he basically did a stand-up routine, cracking the audience up with a collection of jokes and anecdotes from his experiences over the years. And guess what? he is pretty damn funny. Check out his funny bit of comedy, but keep in mind that he uses a few salty NSFW words that aren't appropriate for the workplace.
And, check out his new book “Billy Summers” It is the story of a hitman, and an Iraq war veteran, who just when he is about to retire, is suddenly sucked back into that world again, for just one more job to catch the bad guy.
