Dead Body Guy Crowns Paxton King of The Stiffs

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – An actor who prizes himself on his ability to play dead is now one of the best stiffs in Hollywood.

Chuck Lamb, who calls himself “The Dead Body Guy” because of his desire to be a dead man in TV and movies, is a big fan of Terry Kiser, who portrayed the namesake corpse in Weekend At Bernie’s and Weekend At Bernie’s II.

Still, he says those performances are stiff when compared to Bill Paxton’s portrayal of a corpse in the 1993 western, Tombstone.

Lamb says as popular as Kiser’s portrayal of Bernie is, “They had to put glasses on him, because at first he kept blinking.”

On the other hand, Lamb says Paxton is a consummate cadaver and gushes, “Kurt Russell grabs his face and shakes him all over the place, and Bill Paxton never moves a muscle or blinks. Bill Paxton is King of the Dead Guys.”

Lamb will have a chance to dish on his favorite dead guys on Saturday (April 1) when he hosts a deadly double feature of both Weekend At Bernie’s’ movies on the Starz Comedy movie channel.
