HEAVY, BUT RISING

Rising sharply in the ranks of Hollywood movie heavies is Bill Sadler, a 1968 graduate of Orchard Park High School whose parents -- Bill Sadler and Jane Sadler -- still live in Hamburg. Sadler has the plum role of a major villain in Renny Harlin's "Die Harder," the much-anticipated sequel to John McTiernan's booming and flaming original. Sadler graduated from the State University at Geneseo, went to Cornell for graduate school and made some prime Broadway ("Biloxi Blues") and TV appearances before graduating to movie villainy. He was the No. 1 bad guy in the last Steven Seagall movie, "Hard to Kill," and, after "Die Harder," will be seen as the heavy in Don Johnson's upcoming movie "Hot Spot."
