My agent called and asked if I wanted to audition for a role as a basketball player--unfortunately I was an awful player. Instead, I ended up in this scene with Gene Hackman.

I'm in the back center.

I'm not in this shot, but three of my friends are in the back row: Bob Huddleston, Gordon Hensley, and Mark Patrick.

Actress Barbara Hershey, on left, plays Gene Hackman's love interest.

Hudd (second from left) talks with Gordon. Mark Patrick (now a sportscaster for XM satellite radio) is in the plaid.
