Well......I was in this movie
4 January 2005 | by (Tallahassee) – See all my reviews

They filmed most of this in Vero Beach, Florida in 1982. I was an extra and made 7 scenes in the film. When they stop to watch the questioning of a line of "Nicaraguans" against this barn/building,I am the guy that tries to walk away and gets yanked back by his hair. Dude actually pulled my dang hair! Yeah, it hurt.

Jan Michael Vincent was VERY coked up during the whole shoot, wiping the white dust off his nose after emerging from his trailer many MANY times. This movie proved to me that I was NEVER going to be a movie actor, because it was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO boring and tedious. In one scene, Jan and the Hispanic actress were on horseback riding down a jungle trail(filmed at McKee Jungle Gardens in Vero). Me and another guy step out from behind trees and I say," Abajo".(down). Jan was so doped up, he missed his 2 or 3 lines 75 TIMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That 20 second scene took 4 hours! 75 takes! Man, it sucked!.

Anyway, the "director", Davey Nelson, brother of Rickey, did about .001% of the actual directing, and the 1st AD did the rest.

It was a fun experience, but boy oh boy, did it stink up the theater.

Best part was, while setting up the scene where the house gets blown up, I see this 20-ish woman reading a Tolkien book. I struck up a conversation with her, and we talked for @ half an hour. Afterwards, the other grunts run up to me and ask "What she like!? What did you talk about?". Turns out it was Mary Crosby, and, never having watched Dallas, had no idea who she was. She probably enjoyed the fact I didn't fall down and worship her.

I still hate Dallas though. :D
