  1. Well, if he had a bit part in Targets, LPS was still his first real performance. Even that is just a small part. As for that article, I didn’t watch any of the videos and didn’t read every word, but the two of them seem cracked. A lot of what he says is POSSIBLE, but doesn’t seem very likely. Too bad too. His roster of films is pretty good and pretty diverse.
