my connection to black sunday

I just found out that a fellow that I used to work for in D.C. was in John Frankenheimer’s 1977 movie “Black Sunday.” What’s more, he apparently played himself… That was just about the last thing I was expecting to find when I googled his name. I thought maybe I’d find a list of failed companies, and perhaps a mention of a citation for road rage, or something like that, but instead I find that he once appeared in a film alongside a seriously deranged Bruce Dern. I’m still trying to make sense of it all.

    I just read this book about a year ago and it was bad ass. It seems like the last thing that the guy that created Hannibal Lecter would write.

    I always used to see that picture above at the video store and thought it looked like the cheesist thing ever.

    I haven’t seen it since I was a kid. I just added to my Netflix queue. If I have the time, I’ll post a few still shots showing my former boss in action…. I still can’t believe that in two years of working for the guy, it never came up that he was in Balck Sunday. It seems like someone would have mentioned it.

    OK, I just followed your lead and googled my boss. Guess what? He was in the movie “Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo”!

    The funny thing is, I worked for the guy and I couldn’t pick him out of a crowd of 3 older white guys. I don’t think I even met him, and I worked at the DC office for a month. Not that I was the highest guy on the totem pole, but still. Somehow, though, I’m not going to loose any sleep over all this.

    Rumor has it that he was terrified of you, Jack. He apparently hid in a bathroom stall every time you came into the building, sitting on a toilet, with his knees pulled up to his chest.

    I believe he had old plumbing.

    Isn’t it possible that he ran to the bathroom every time he saw Jack for another reason? I’d rather not spell it out for you. Let’s just say that it might explain the moaning.
