John Larroquette received weed to do ‘Texas Chain Saw Massacre’


John Larroquette‘s role in 1974’s “Texas Chain Saw Massacre” wasn’t precisely a comfortable job. But it was apparently a kush-y one.

In a Parade interview printed Tuesday, the veteran actor confirmed that pal and “Texas Chain Saw Massacre” director Tobe Hooper paid him in weed for his characteristic movie debut. Larroquette was in his 20s when he narrated the basic slasher as “a favor” to the rising filmmaker.

“Totally true,” Larroquette stated, addressing on-line rumors he was compensated in hashish.

“He gave me some marijuana or a matchbox or whatever you called it in those days. I walked out of the [recording] studio and patted him on the back side and said, ‘Good luck to you!’”

According to Parade, Larroquette and Hooper grew to become buddies within the late Sixties whereas the previous was tending bar and the latter was capturing a venture in Colorado. To pursue appearing, Larroquette later moved to Los Angeles, the place he reconnected with Hooper and agreed to take part in his new horror flick.

“Tobe heard I was in town and asked for an hour of my time to narrate something for this movie he just did,” he says. “I said ‘Fine!’ It was a favor.”

The relaxation is historical past: “Texas Chain Saw Massacre” grew to become a seminal horror hit, and Larroquette reprised his function as narrator for a remake (2003), a prequel (2006) and a sequel (2022). Larroquette — who admittedly isn’t “a big horror movie fan” — advised Parade he hasn’t really seen any of the “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” movies (which advanced the title weapon into one phrase), however he did obtain actual paychecks for subsequent installments.

“You do something for free in the 1970s and get a little money in the ’90s,” he stated. “It’s certainly the one credit that’s stuck strongly to my resume.”

Though “Texas Chain Saw Massacre” is undoubtedly a stable resume builder, Larroquette is maybe greatest identified for his function as assistant district legal professional Dan Fielding within the common authorized comedy, “Night Court,” which initially aired from 1984 to 1992. He is the one returning solid member featured within the 2023 revival of “Night Court,” which premiered Wednesday on NBC.
