John Larroquette confirms an old rumor on the Internet: Check Deets
John Larroquette has confirmed the long-running internet rumor about the 1974 horror film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, where he received weed as payment instead of cash.
According to Paradehorror film director Tobe Hooper paid the Richie Rich star for narrating the film’s prologue in the grass.
“Exactly true,” adding, “He gave me some marijuana or a box of matches or whatever you called it at the time. I walked out of the [recording] studio and patted her on the back and said, “Good luck to you!”
The 75-year-old added that he first met the director in the summer of 1969 when Larroquette, who “wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with my life”, was working as a bartender in the Colorado and Hooper worked in the area. on a project.
The pair connected and came into contact when Larroquette moved to Los Angeles to continue acting.
“Tobe heard I was in town and asked for an hour of my time to narrate something for this movie he just made,” he said. “I said, ‘Very good!’ It was a favor.”
The film was successful because it spawned a franchise, and Larroquette lent his voice to those as well.
You do something for free in the 1970s and earn some money in the 90s,” he said. “That’s definitely the one credit that sticks strongly to my resume.”
