I was supposed to be doing the part of
the foreman who blows up the building at the end but this movie was made at
the time Roland was moving the company to the States. As a result, that
sequence was filmed in the States and I didn't get to do it as I live and
work in Germany.
Since Roland had offered me a part before they made that
decision (based on working with him in Joey aka Making Contact ),
he asked if I would just do one of the group reporters so of course I said sure.
The one story I do remember came about because of meals. In the
first movie the meals were delivered to the set by a caterer. On Ghost Chase ,
they had contracted with a nearby Gasthaus (restaurant) so the entire
cast and crew would break and drive/ride over to meals. One day I asked
Jason Lively (who was a great guy and very easy going) if he wanted to ride
with me over to lunch. As we drove out of the parking lot he looked over at
me and said "I've got to tell you, doing movies over here is a lot
different. In the States, most of the extras don't drive Porsches." I was
driving my Porsche 944. Needless to say, it didn't come from my extra
It was a lot of fun doing both movies and I enjoyed working with
Roland a lot. I wish he had stayed over here so I could have continued
working with him. I have enjoyed watching each new film as it came out. I
guess it should be about time for another one.
