Born & Bred American

12/9/2008 4:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The 52-year-old resurfaced at something called the Chiller Theatre Expo in New Jersey recently, looking extra special.
Billy Redden
Because Redden did not know how to play the banjo, another young banjo player reportedly knelt behind him and reached around his chest to play the banjo. Redden wore a specially designed shirt that made the man's arms appear to be his own.

Billy appeared in the 2003 film "Big Fish" after director Tim Burton found him working as cook and dishwasher at a cafe in Georgia.

I currently live about a hour from where Deliverence was filmed. Billy still lives in the area (Rabun County, Georgia) and the restaurant where he was "a cook and dishwasher" he also co-owned with a friend. They sold the restaurant a few years back.

Mr. Reddin currently works at the local Walmart in Clayton. From what I have been told he is a very nice man.

He looks like a very nice and pleasant person. Leave him alone TMZ. He probably works alot harder than some of the no-talent celebs that you show on here.
