As a San Francisco native, Sam Rockwell says he doesn't know why he gets offered roles to play "a lot of rednecks and country guys," but he's taking the opportunity to try to understand complex, unlovable male characters. Rockwell, 49, who recently played a Klansman and a brutish Texas colonel, currently co-stars as a racist, angry police officer in the movie "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri". Dixon's character in "Three Billboards" is forced to face humility and he ends the film in an unexpected place.McDonagh and Rockwell said they hoped the film sparked conversations around the issue.
