behemoth at large
13 February 2018 | by sandcrab277See all my reviews

While its true cannon looked like a walking heart attack, he played a pretty good ex police lieut turned private investigator....what always amused me was how he glided around the sets with his hands in his pockets, probably because he didn't know what else to do with them...his eyes always looked like narrow slits as he squinted all the time...one of his pet dialogue lines was have i got a restaurant for you where they serve the best so and so....as hefty as he looked people had no doubts he was truly a gourmand...his choice of vehicle the fabled rincon continner was perfect but i noticed his driving was hard on the shocks and springs
