Richard is a Jewish actor who gets away with using his great trademarks. Good thing, man!

Centepede: "I'm from Brooklyn" Dreyfuss is from Brooklyn in reality.

2sillytube2sillytubeApr 8, 2010

maybe explore your fans,this one lists a movie plot for JAWS The Beginning,in about me section.Though a comedy or non-horror movie like this could have Cheech and Chong as shack boys.

PeggyNov 1, 2009
