Whatever happened to Jake Blackschmidt?
2 February 2018 | by lionman1299See all my reviews

He had a short but very appealing part in Hollywood Shuffle, and he was in this as Jesus but we could only see him for a brief second from the back. I think that is all the movies he made. Mr. Blackschmidt, I don't know what happened to you, but if you are reading this, I hope you have had a good life.
