My brief acting career

Long ago, when I was a young gorilla, I auditioned for a role in "King Kong: The Legend Reborn" but ultimately lost out to Rick Baker. However, I caught the eye of one of the directors of "Wonder Woman." I guest-starred as Gorilla Grodd of the Secret Society of Super Villains. Here is a picture of Lynda Carter and me talking during a scene break:


(Back then, I wore my fur long. It was the 1970's, after all.)

Although Lynda Carter and I got along well, the character of Wonder Woman thoroughly trounced Gorilla Grodd, and thus I never returned for future episodes. After a few more half-hearted attempts to pursue my acting career (my best-paid gig was as an uncredited extra in "Farewell to the Planet of the Apes"), I traded the silver screen for a silver platter and decided to train as a chef.

Wow, Brad, I had no idea you'd had an acting career. I guess in retrospect it's not so suprising.

Maybe you're a good actor, but you look goofy. Producers and directors might find you to be too much. I, on the other hand, think that a goofy gorilla should have a major role in every movie.
