Dummy Socks

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 them.

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 GUMP.”

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 a glove.”
