Dummy may not have been born in a trunk, like the
old style Vaudevillians, but you could say that he was at least born
in a shoe box. His parents were the well known Burlesque comedy team
known on stage as “SOCKS AND UNDERWEAR,” who were seen
throughout the 1950’s and 1960’s on stage with such acts
as "Elvis" and "The Beetles." They may have been
Burlesque comics, but their act was always clean. Many a famous performer
refused to go out on stage without clean Socks and Underwear with
Dummy followed in his parents “show-biz” footsteps, getting
his start as a stand-in for main performers on shows such as SESAME
STREET, KUKLA, FRAN and OLLIE and CAPATIN KANGAROO. In the mid-1980's
most people knew Dummy only as the gloved hand of Michael Jackson,
but tensions soon grew between the two performers when Michael introduced
his "crotch grabbing" move in his video "Billie Jean."
After years of appearances on the Ed Sullivan, as well as the TONIGHT
Show with Johnny Carson, Dummy disappeared from the stage for years,
dedicating himself to training for benefits such as “walk-a-thon’s”
and ‘The Boston Marathon.” This training came in handy
when Dummy landed his first big film role as the stunt double for
Tom Hank’s foot in the running scene of the 1994 hit, “FOREST
Tragedy soon followed as Dummy’s once thriving career was brought
to a screeching halt when a bout of chronic athletes foot caused Dummy
to develop an addiction to fabric softener that made studios wary
of hiring the talented actor. Thanks to the intervention of actor
friends like Elizabeth Taylor and Robert Downy Jr., Dummy entered
the BETTY FORD CENTER and soon was on the road to recovery.
“BUMPING OFF BURT” is Dummy’s first venture back
onto the silver screen, but his fellow actors have had nothing but
praise for the veteran Thespian. In the words of fellow actor, David
Cabrera, “Dummy was so perfect for this role, that he fit like
Coffee Shop Owner…
Hispanic Man in Rehab…
Man at Police Station…
Diner and Bar Patrons…
Burts other Hostage…
