A buddy of mine would do stand ins and short scenes for the Texas Walker show here in Texas. He said Chuck was a cool dude as well.

When I was 18 or so, and thought I was a bad ass...., I was dating a hotty that worked at our local theater.
Chuck Norris was in town to promote his new movie.

My girl was hot for him and was working when Chuck was there.

I told her to tell him I could kick his ass.
I even tried to go there but had to work.

I thought he was just an actor and had no clue he was 4 time world champion kick boxer 😆

Lucky for me, he was way smarter than me 😉

When it comes to celebrities and their off screen accomplishments, I always am amazed with Vinnie Barbarino piloting a jumbo jet:

Prior to NAFTA, some of the south fl agriculture was used to launder $$.
After NAFTA, the markets were flooded with so much cheap labor Mexican produce that the $$ losses were prohibitive even for cleaning money. The tomato industry is all but dead and gone today.

What do you think the bodyguards for Trump and Johnson were protecting, their egos?

RR
Honestly, the guys with Trump were more like executive types than meathead bodyguards (more secret service look than thug). Remember, Trump was king in A/C back then owning 3 or 4 hotels at that time and was the main sponsor of the race. To be honest, he had more reason for the bodyguards than Don Johnson.

Don't know much about DJ other than the fact that his daughter is pretty hot and that he raced with one of the nicest guys to ever get in a boat, Richie Powers.
