1997 was a big year for pop culture. The Spice Girls' "Wannabe" was ruling the airwaves, J.K. Rowling started the beginning of a little known series, "Harry Potter," and Tiger Woods became the youngest person to win the Masters at 21.

It was a pretty huge year. However, the biggest pop culture moment of 1997 was probably the release of the Oscar winning film, "Titanic."
As we all know, "Titanic" tells the story of the romance between Rose DeWitt Bukater, (Kate Winslet), and Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) aboard the ill-fated, R.M.S. Titanic. We have followed the careers of Kate, Leo and the brilliant Kathy Bates to their incredible successes. That begs the question, what has Rose's arrogant fiancé, Cal Hockley been up to?
For a refresher, he is what Cal (Billy Zane) used to look like back in 1997.
His full name, Caledon Nathan Hockley, was the character we all loved to hate. Cal tried to use his money to win Rose over, but it's safe to say that she was absolutely not having it. Remember that epic spitting scene between the two? After all, we have Jack and his spitting lessons to thank for that, and it's safe to say, fans enjoyed the scene.
TITANIC (and all of @JimCameron films) excels at set-ups and delivering gems; like Jack teaching Rose to spit = Rose spitting on Cal's face

To say Billy Zane has busy since his role on "Titanic" would be a tremendous understatement! He has starred in "Zoolander," "Community," "The Dome," "Psych," and so much else. Check out his full list of credits on Moviefone. Zane also stars in the highly anticipated Amazon series, "Mad Dogs."
Zane also has a great social following, with over 20K followers on Twitter. Just check out some of his tweets below.
Nevertheless, Cal Hockley will continue to one of the most hated characters in movie history. How can you board the boat, Cal? That was for women and children only!
Okay, we digress. Check out more Titanic pics in the gallery below!
