The Litch was the first film I’ve ever needed a stunt double. It’s really funny to see someone in the same outfit as you, playing your role. I sort of have the Patty Duke Show jingle ringing in my head each time I see a picture of my double, Alan Maxson.
What I love about my stunt double’s look is the overall doughy look of the molding on his face. It matches my skin tone well. And those pouty lips…hilarious. My lips are ample, but those lips are ghoulishly puffy like the Botox nightmares we sometimes see in La-la-land. I must admit that Alan is better at wielding that humongous knife than me, but I bet we could go head-to-head in rolling pin assault skills. Be sure to catch The Litch when it comes out later this year.
