Vision Quest: Of Course Brian Shute Wasn’t Really 168 Lbs

Do you recall the movie Vision Quest? Well it turns out that Brian Shute wasn’t 168 in the movie, he was more like 189. The actor that portrayed the state wrestling champ was Frank Jasper and he was a monster of a man when he was selected for this role. He was working as an athletic trainer at Eastern Washington University when a wrestler he’d been helping out mentioned that he was an extra for Vision Quest, and that they were looking for a person six feet tall and who knew how to wrestle. Jasper thought it might be

A “Stripes” TV Adaptation is in the Works at CBS

You might not believe this, but a Stripes adaptation is currently in the works at CBS. It’s something that’s not entirely easy to think about since the movie, released in 1981, was later on considered to be such hit that it couldn’t and shouldn’t have been given any thought to being repeated in any way. The story is funny, engaging, and so over the top that you couldn’t possibly imagine anyone in the army attempting to get away with these kind of antics. That’s what made the movie though, the unreal aspects that coupled so nicely with few realistic touches
