Some People's careers NEVER DIE!

holiday32-2a

It was almost a year ago today. I was helping a crazed INDIAN director recreate a scene from one of his favorite comic books. He decided to cast a rather old actor to play the part of a evil midget mob boss. The problem was the actor was not just old...he was 92. Pluse he was crazy and almost died like 5 times. The day of the shoot was grueling, hillarious, and extremely bizare. The old man tried to electricute himself and almost broke his hip. The weird thing was we had to pretty much hold his hand while on the set and then when we wrapped he was like:

'PEACE BITCHES I'M OUT'

and backflipped out of the front door. Needless to say he would pop up in every casting session thereafter no matter the part, budget, or genre. He would be like:

'HEY LOOK AT ME...IN 92'

and we would be like:

'JOHNNY, YES WE KNOW HOW OLD YOU ARE BUT THIS IS A CASTING SESSION FOR WHALE RIDER 2... YOU ARE NOT FROM NEW ZEALAND, YOU ARE NOT A THIRTEEN YEAR OLD GIRL, AND I THINK YOU JUST POOPED YOUR PANTS.'

I could tell you story after story of creepy encounters, but the most shocking was flipping the channels last night during commercials and seeing JOHNNY on THE LATE SHOW with LENO. He was like

'HEY I'M A 92 YEAR OLD ACTOR'

and LENO was all

'I'm not that funny!'
