THROWBACK THURSDAY


The early 1990's in Austin, Texas. A photo taken by SWMBO. Submitted for an Extra (or better) role in motion pictures.

I landed two Extra (no better) parts in "What's Eating Gilbert Grape", with Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio, and "A Perfect World", with Clint Eastwood, Kevin Costner and Laura Dern.

One day each. But it was fun.

My Oscar role still awaits.

You look like the captain of a ship from the 1800s. It's a great look.

Steve said...

How was the pay for a one day extra?

Catalyst said...

I think it was about $75 plus lunch. (Steak on Eastwood's film!)

Steve said...

That sounds okay when you throw in the steak lunch.

So now have to watch those films.

You could be an Irish rover or a member of the Maynard G. Krebs society.

quilteddogs said...

That is great. Saw both movies but what parts were you in?

L Lewis said...

Agreed! Ahoy Mateys! You look like a very mean captain of a very old ship. The kind that makes use of walking the plank.

Catalyst said...

Strictly background and unrecognizable.

Catalyst said...

Not if you're looking for me, Joe.

I hope your trawler brought in a boat-load of North Atlantic Cod.

Great picture!

You are a man of many talents.
