3 of 3: After the release of 'The Blair Witch Project,' Michael C. Williams appeared in small films such as the drama 'Montclair' in 2007, the 2008 thriller 'The Objective' and starred in episodes of shows such as 'Law and Order' and 'Without a Trace.' His most recent role came in 2009, when he appeared on 'Law and Order: Special Victims Unit' as a father of a missing girl.

Williams later settled in Hawthorne, New York, where he lives with his wife and two children - a son and daughter. A 2009 article in The Journal News quoted him as saying he made about $300,000 over the course of several years following the release of 'The Blair Witch Project' and and that he and other two main cast members were paid $1,000 for shooting the movie over the course of eight days.

At the time, it said he works as a furniture mover, gives acting lessons and had a 'backup plan' to obtain a master's degree in school counseling and guidance at the College of New Rochelle. He and his wife also launched the Big Blue Door Theatre Company.

He also penned an online letter to director Steven Spielberg, who was not involved in the making of 'The Blair Witch Project,' on a website called 'earmrspielberg.com. It has since been taken down.

He said in his letter that the movie's co-director told him that he met Spielberg, who reportedly told him that he 'really enjoyed 'Blair' and called Williams a 'good actor' who 'stood out.'

Williams then describes some of his acting jobs and writes: 'It would mean a tremendous amount to me if you would consider me for any of your future projects. You have been an idol of mine since you and Bob Zemeckis brought the world 'Back to the Future,' which, as a 10 year old, I saw in the theatre seven times. I hope that this [head] shot lands on your desk ... and ends with a handshake.'
