Were they all bad guys in slasher flicks? I know two played Michael Myers.

Verdant Earl said...

Adam - I was just having a little fun. They all played Michael Myers (as The Shape). There were other actors who played him as a kid and whatnot, but these guys all donned the Shatner mask and coveralls.

Water Logged Canine said...

Easy answer?

Kevin Bacon.

Avitable said...

I didn't realize it was called "The Shape", either. I just knew I recognized two of the names as being behind the Shatner mask. Pretty funny.

sybil law said...

Who ARE you, and what have you done with Earl?

Verdant Earl said...

Doggie - Nope. Just bacon. They all love pork.

Adam - That is funny that you recognized the names.

Sybil - Yeah, just having some fun this weekend and posting whenever I feel like it.

Poppy said...

My guess was going to be "uncircumcised". Damn.

badgerdaddy said...

Also, wasn't Nick Castle one of the producers of a couple of the movies? And with the Thrill me reference, Tom Atkins, Night of the Creeps - who was also in Halloween 3: Season of the Witch. Do I get a bonus blowjob? From Slyde?

Verdant Earl said...

Poppy - That too.

badger - Yeah, and Tom Atkins character from The Fog was named after...Nick Castle. Did I just blow your mind?

badgerdaddy said...

Well check this out... Nick Castle's father, Alfonso Castle, has been quoted as saying that there are no other relatives in the family called Nick, it's not a family name. Apparently, "it's just something I thought of while shaving."

True story. And if you know what movie I robbed that from, you're a legend.

white rabbit said...

Oh, I was going to say they all had stupid names (except Nick Castle - who apparently has a sensible name for a stupid reason -see badger)

Heff said...

I watched the Bio channel's feature about the movie, so I knew the answer.

Before seeing that, I had never heard the term "The Shape".

Verdant Earl said...

badger - Top Secret, of course. Nick Rivers is a legend!

Wabbit - Dick Warlock? A stupid name? I think not!

Heff - Ooooh, haven't seen that. I need to remedy it.

badgerdaddy said...

Dude, YOU'RE the legend. So few people seem to have seen that film!
