John F. Daniel, a Shreveport actor who has landed upon the movie train with both feet under him, says of his time on the set of Year Without a Santa Claus in Natchitoches, "I worked for a week on this production. My scenes were all set during the fictional town's Christmas festival, as well as during a traffic jam involving a couple tons worth of snow and cars. Oh, and unlike the hundreds of volunteer extras from Natchitoches, I got paid, lol."
"Since the movie Roadhouse 2 came out today, pardon me for pointing out that I can be seen from behind in the last two minutes of the movie, dancing to some horrible country music. But after seeing the finished product, I wouldn't recommend wasting 3 bucks to rent it. It's so bad it makes the average porn video look like a masterpiece."
Hope you'll forgive me for noting the sweat stained jerkin being worn by Santa's helper in snow-covered Natchitoches.
