BURTON GILLIAM – “IT’S BUBBA!”

By

October 1, 2020
I went back to the fire station after 'Paper Moon', and about three months later I got this phone call. “Fire Station number 39, Gilliam speaking”. “Hello, my name is Mel Brooks. I’m a writer, director, producer, actor, and I’m getting ready to do a big picture, and I want you to be one of my stars.” I said, 'Thank you Mr. Brooks.' Boom, I just hung up the phone. What if he hadn’t called back? I’d have those two cows and living out in East Texas, wouldn’t I?

BARRY CORBIN… EXPOSED!

We did 'War Games'. My part was General Beringer. Apparently the Director, John Badham, thought I reminded him of his dad, who was an Air Force General and I ad-libbed the line “God damn it! I’d piss on a sparkplug if I thought it’d do any good! Let the boy in there, Major.” We had’em rolling in the aisles. As the 'Dallas' reboot was shooting, Patrick called. They brought me in to read JR's will, and I said to Patrick, ‘Well, I’m sorry to hear about Larry (Hagman passing away).' Patrick said, ‘Yeah, the SOB had nerve, didn’t he? He died in the middle of the season!

Oh, I wanted to be a Carthage Bulldog soooo bad. And I remember hearing about my brother playing for Carthage. From first grade on; You’re seeing that Carthage football team, I wanna be one of those guys, wear that red uniform. I said, “I can’t wait until its my turn. The Friday pep rallies, that Friday spirit. Hardly watched the games growing up, but, man, it was something else. So, when I got in the eighth grade, I was a Bullpup at Turner Junior High.

JOHN FITZGERALD BOOTY, PART TWO

By
on
August 16, 2020
You end your NFL career, 102 games, 37 starts, 14 picks, 4 sacks, 6 fumble recoveries, 4 fumbles, a blocked punt, a pass reception for 48 and a kickoff return. You picked off two Hall of Fame quarterbacks in Marino and Aikman. I mean, the kid that played one year of football until your junior year of high school, the kid that got cut from the JV, the kid that Mom put in a car and made go back to college because he didn't want to be there - but he stuck it out. That was John Booty.
