Today we salute Rick Holt (shown on the left), a largely anonymous cyclist content to ride slowly in groups unseen by us ultrafit, greyhounds riding like caged animals at the front. Rick has a passion for acting and after years of toiling in the backgroud performing bit parts in prison themed porn movies, Rick finally hit the big time. Here is the actual review from the Newark Advocate:
Rick Holt steals the show right and left as Andy's father, Phil Gorski. Holt lives it up as a character who enjoys bickering with other people, yet the actor built a true character, not just a cranky parody.
Never once could Holt be caught projecting the thought, "Look how funny I am!" Instead, no matter what was going on, his character was concentrated on it. Even when Mr. Gorski was across the room wiping out a shot glass with his Christmas tie, one could watch the unfolding conflict in Holt's face as he listened intensely to the others, despite pretending not to pay attention.

Thanks Mark. Feels good to get out of that prison too. (note: the one wearing the wig)

Rick, Looking forward to my first dose of "Christmas Cheer" from the play. Since you're a cyclist I'll say "Break a Collar Bone"
