Didn't he play in Blow?? A fouth movie with Johnny?


Lady Jill, I haven't seem him credited anywhere in Blow but someone else may know better than I.

Wasn't that him in the scene where they are testing the blow at that bar with the window behind and swimming pool?
Maybe someone else.

I'm remembering Paul Reubens and Bobcat Goldwaithe in that scene but I could easily be wrong!

Were one of those the guy behind the bar? The one testing the cocaine?

I think they were both behind the bar with George in front? Derek (Reubens) serving it up and Bobcat Goldwaithe and George doing the testing? Hmmm...guess I need to watch the movie again...all in the name of research of course. :grin:

I don't know about Iggy being in Blow (don't think so), but I didn't see any mention on this thread yet about Iggy's contribution to the Arizona Dream soundtrack, especially the opening tune.

:interesting:
Depp: It's true. I don't sing along to music.
Q: "Brown Sugar" comes on …
Depp: I might sing a little harmony. I might air guitar. Drumming. I like to drum.

You're right SweetSam. I didn't list all his soundtrack credits but that is definitely one of them!

Thanks Gilbert Girl:
Yes, I can really see that that guy does look like Iggy Pop.
Mystery solved.
