Never heard of it -- perhaps because you ruined it (j/k).



It wasn't in the theaters long. Good cast,
hard to follow plot. You lived in Santa
Barbara, remember the big parade they
have every summer? They reinacted the
parade for the movie and I was part of
the crowd on the sidewalk. 3 days to
shoot the stupid thing for no money.
They gave us lunch, which was a brown
bag with a turkey sandwich, a small
bag of Fritos, and an apple and a Pepsi.

Movie making is extremely boring, I
never had the urge to be in another one.

Evenbob,

My guess is that you're directly behind Jeff Bridges with the woman that is looking upwards. Looking at the photo, your likely on the left of that woman, and she's probably your girlfriend or wife.

My daughter was an extra in an independent production (NOT Cutter and Bone), it was one of those teen/football/cheerleader/rivalry/favorite vs scrappy underdog team things. She happened to be sitting in front of some of the "talent" in a scene where they are in the football stands, so she got some nice screen time.

If I recall correctly, the underdog team does in fact win ! Who'd a thunk it !

Pittsburgh has had some big movies filmed here recently. Batman and concussion to name a few. About 10 years ago when the movie boom started around here a bunch of my friends/aquaintences were exteas because they thought it would be assume. None of them ever went to a 2nd one.

I was in this scene, not in these pics.
I was never that close to the stars,
and they put all the best looking
people behind them in shots like
this. There were at least 150 extras
there for 3 days, they just moved
us around a lot to make the crowd
look bigger.

I dated a porn star a few times.

It was a lot of fun.

Way too much to live up to there. I would be a huge disappointment.

I don't know why she was interested in me, but at the time I didn't care.

I think she mentioned something about being disappointed, now that I think of it?

If you are referring to the film, and not the topic of the last couple of posts, then yes I saw it Friday evening.

I'd rate it "fair" and definitely weaker than the previous three. As for the Las Vegas scenes, they were creative with the geography. In the car chase up the strip, they had crashes for about a mile getting from Aria to Paris. Then, after the leap/crash at Bally's, they smashed into the casino right next door -- you know the one: the Riviera, of course!
