Arnie Grape

Click here, or just click on the image to start the video.

A few weeks back I was doing some crew work on Carlos Pina's short film, El Pollo Fuerte (script by yours truly). In this clip we are doing a nighttime campfire scene up at Canyon Lake at the home of filmmakers Russ and Lisa Ansley.

One of the cast members is the very talented Chris Dean (or as he likes to be credited, Christopher L. Dean). Chris has more than a passing resemblance to Leonardo DiCaprio (no matter what he might say). Now, my favorite DiCaprio movie by far is What's Eating Gilbert Grape. Maybe one day Leonardo will be able to match that great performance. I'll keep waiting. Until then, here's Arnie Grape.
