      Hans (Christopher Walken) is Billy's partner in crime. A religious man with a violent past. Charlie is the psychopathic gangster whose beloved dog, Billy and Hans have just stolen. Charlie is unpredictable, extremly violent and wouldn't think twice about killing anyone and anything associated with the theft.
