Howard brought in “Gambling Dan,” a former intern who once gambled away his college tuition. Dan worked on the set of “Private Parts” as a sound assistant, and turned it into a huge career in Hollywood, eventually earning him a six-figures salary as a Second Assistant Director. Dan claimed Steve Grillo was jealous for a long time, but they’ve since made up. Dan then said the hours as a SAD were too long, so he’s giving it up to become a gym teacher in New York. Dan told the crew he once worked with Martin Lawrence, but you’re not allowed to look at him. Martin was “miserable” on set, and relayed all messages through an intermediary. Dan also worked on “Bandits,” which starred Bruce Willis, Billy Bob Thorton, and Cate Blanchett. Dan said he got his girlfriend a job as Cate’s body double only to have Bruce Willis spend the whole shoot flirting with her. Dan then revealed that he once noticed Billy Bob’s trailer “rocking” when Angelina Jolie was visiting the set.
