[quote author=Dameon link=board=tv-film;num=1082826458;start=90#98 date=10/26/05 at 22:24:37] Although i've seen it before, I only noticed last night that Dweezil Zappa appeared in the 1987 film The Running Man.[/quote]<br><br>If you've seen it before:<br><br>*  how come you didn't recognise him the first time?  :o<br>*  how come even the phrase "Don't touch that dial" didn't perk you up enough to notice it was him the first time?  :o<br>*  how come you didn't recognise him earlier in the movie?  :o<br><br>I was watching Steve Vai's DVD at the Astoria last night and listening to the commentary track (never listened to that before (good fun) although I have had DVD since it came out) and when it finished I flicked around channels and got Running Man and it was just at the start of the Dweeze's first scene. Serendipity! Had to watch the rest to see the "Dial" scene even though I don't like the movie much. One of Arnie's EVEN MORE wooden performances.<br> ;D

[quote author=hhyu00 link=board=tv-film;num=1082826458;start=90#94 date=10/22/05 at 21:10:36]You might not believe this, folks, but a poster of Frank Zappa was in an episode of Friends (the TV sitcom). In that episode, Chandler was talking to Julia Roberts in front of a music store, which displayed very prominentely a poster of "Strictly Commercial".<br><br>[/quote]<br><br>I believe you...... ;D<br>Image

In the movie Slacker by Richard Linklater. A guy in a taxi (played by the director) tells the cab driver some dreams he's had, and one of them is him having breakfast with FZ.
