Studio chiefs successfully cast the part of Nailhead in forthcoming
blockbuster Hellraiser - The Hong Kong Connection after an unknown actor
turned up in full costume, gave a flawless, agonized performance and then
totally disappeared leaving a baffled casting director and second unit
"He kept stopping for aspirin" said baffled director Eliza Frupleskein, 27.
Baffled 42 year old studio security head, James Earl Smith said late last
night,"He rushed out of the studio lot without leaving a contact number. In
full makeup and costume. I'm completely baffled."
Director of Photography Alfred Stopcock, the famous 52 year old maker of such
classics as "Psychic" and "Dial P for Pizza" admitted to being completely
baffled. "The chap had the part completely nailed. Then he just ran out,
screaming. It's baffling."
"Alfred was going for drama" said Miss Frupelskein, 27. "To get the long dark
shadows he had the pin spots almost completely baffled."
