  1. The thing I don’t get… is who the fuck was Stephen Lack that financers were insisting her star in the movie? Makes no sense to me.

    • Unfortunately, nobody connected to either the productions of Scanners nor Dead Ringers (in which Lack has a blink-and-miss-it cameo) has chosen to elaborate how Lack managed to get cast. Cronenberg has also not confirmed, so far as I know, the rumour that he directed Lack to “act” in this manner.

      If we knew exactly who was writing the cheques on Scanners, we could investigate them for connections to Mister Lack.

Chuck shit at me here
