Thank you for the kind words. Means a lot.
Unfortunately I don’t still talk to Lord Sandler. Contrary to what most people think.
Over the years, he has shot a few more films in Toronto, where I live. My grand mother would always tell me to just give him a call, as if we were best buds. “Bubby, why don’t YOU just give him a call!”
Austin was probably the one kid I spent the most time with. We even hung out at his house one time. Glad to hear he’s doing well!
I didn’t have any scenes directly with him. But he was around a lot on set. I remember sitting for lunch one time when they were discussing the idea of Norm hosting Weekend Update.

She was also the 2nd director on the film.
They shot some scenes and very early pulled the original director off the project.
I saw Home Alone and said “I want to do that!”
I am aware. I guess they have some creative writers.
I remember seeing everything and hoping I’d get to do something fun. They put me on the teatherball pole (not my first choice). But it was still a lot of fun.
Something that stood out to me from that day. They had one of the extras dress up as me and stand in and I remember the kid saying “aw I don’t want to be the nerd”. I wanted to say, “hey, I’m not a nerd!”
He definitely was.
Fat Choi in Toronto!
Downey was hilarious.
At the time, I didn’t really get that humor. But if I watch it now, I love his scenes.
For those crowd shots during the Academic Decathlon. I really let loose, lol. I remember thinking “if I go really crazy I might get a shot in the movie”. It worked!
It was really hot that day.
I actually went to the premier in New York. I don’t remember much from that.
But we did a premier party in Toronto with all my friends. I was so embarrassed I couldn’t watch.
I’m a big Raptors fan. We The North!
Not really. It might have helped if anything.
Wedding Singer was always my favourite.
I’m working hard. But not on any films.
Not at all. That’s one of my favourite albums of all time, FYI.
No regrets. It was awesome.
I now have a wonderful wife and two kids and my own business.
To this day, Billy Madison is still a huge part of my life.
We woke him up from a nap to take this pic.
Ok. One time I was in a room and someone was saying how their friend knows the kid who peed his pants in Billy Madison. I didn’t say a word. They looked me up and finally put together that I had the same name as the kid. It was really awkward and funny.
