Actually i did know that Very Happy

Here's one relating to my sig and avi:

Did you know that when the actor Doug Bradley who played Pinhead went to a party that the cast and crew was having he was completely ignored and neglected and was very upset as a result. He expressed this to the other cast and crew members, only to find out that nobody recognized him because this was the first time they had seen him without his makeup on.
