They interviewed some of the local Oregon cast of ANIMAL HOUSE, but missed a Landis regular cast member, Eliza Garrett (now Eliza Roberts), who played "Brunella At The Desk". The casting of Eliza came about because she'd starred in Landis' SCHLOCK as a teenager. John called her to play the role that Lisa Bauer played, but when Eliza informed him she was pregnant, he asked her instead to play the poncho'd Brunella.

Eliza went on the continue acting, become a casting director and marry actor Eric Roberts.
