Friends In Movies 1

Living in Los Angeles, I have a number of friends who are actors. Some are constantly working, some toil in side jobs until the roles materialize. The attached woodcut features my friend Steve Tash who thrived as a character actor in the 80's & 90's. This image is from the opening scene of "Ghostbusters." Steve was the struggling student who volunteered for Bill Murray's ESP experiments for five dollars and a bevy of electric shocks. Steve gets the movie's first big laugh when his chewing gum is shocked out of his mouth. Though his acting days are behind him, today Steve runs a literary management company.
