You know, though, I have always wondered about the
Larry Block connection. His performance is really
only seconds long, and he doesn't speak a word. He
glares, though. He's good.
But come on, doesn't anyone else find it a little
suspicious that Larry is in this film? Was he
contributing to Joe's show by 1984/5, when "After
Hours" was shot/released? Has Scorsese ever commented
Joe's "No Show" comments seemed pretty definitive, but
the Larry thing really surprised me. Larry, you're
out there, man, care to shed some light?
