Hello, Nutkins here, I used to be in Animal Magic and The Really Wild Show, you know, I had two of my fingers bitten off by my own Otter, and even though I am bald, I still have decided to grow my hair. I am here today to tell you about Hollywood.
Many people donít realise that I was offered many film roles in the 1980ís, which I turned down, such films as Back to the Future (The part of Marty McFly), Indiana Jones (the part of Dr. Marcus Brody), Star Wars (C3p0) and The Ewoks Caravan of Courage (The Ewok).
Why did Terry Nutkins turn these parts down you ask? He would have been amazing in all of them! Yes, that is true also, as well.
The reason I turned all these parts down is simple, Hollywood.
Hollywood is in America and it is full of yes men who try to give you drugs and touch you all over.
In 1982 I was in New York with Brian De Palma to read through the script of ďScarfaceĒ I was in line to play Tony Montana, I had been working on my German accent for the part and had developed a $2000 a day cocaine habit in preparation for the role, Brian seemed happy with everything, he certainly used to shout and cry a lot, suddenly I was dropped from the film, for no reason, well, I think the reason was my good looks distracting viewers, plus my German accent was excellent.
Iím sure Iím not the first person to be chewed up by the Hollywood machine, and I wonít be the last. I was in Hollywood in 1986 to discuss the script for Predator with Fox, not a real fox you understand, and no, it didnít have Johnny Morrisí voice!
I was in line to play the Predator and hunt Arnold Schwarzenegger to death; I was offered mind altering life changing drugs in a big giant barrel and naked ladies with boobs to do the film.
I had to get out, I couldnít stay in this world, and I canít even begin to tell you about what they offered me to do Rambo 3 (A baby Shark and a vat of drugs so big a man hurt his arm bringing it to me) I awoke the next day, told my agent to hold my calls and took the first plane back to London and did a new series of The Really Wild Show instead, life was back to normal.
Hollywood never really forgave me for leaving without saying anything, and they never called my agent again, though in 1997 I was sent a dead elephant in the post, I donít think I have heard the last from Hollywood.
Still, no regrets.
