When I did background acting/stand-in work back in the late 80s-late 90s, I saw Dennis Woodruff on occasion (never met him, though).
Woodruff was essentially known for his ornately-decorated cars and posting DENNIS WOODRUFF: ACTOR photos in public places. One time, I saw Dennis walking his dog in Santa Monica, cheerfully bellowing to passers-by in mock tribute to James Cameron: I'M KING OF THE WORLD!
Over a decade ago, I wrote a poem for the original HOLLYWOOD POETRY book called "The Randy Culhane Story" about a Woodruff-esque actor who made an end-run around Industry rejection by making his own movies.
At the time, I thought the poem was merely fantasy. And then, yesterday at the Amoeba Records store in Hollywood, I saw the Troma-released DVD collection linked to at the top of this blog post.
