    You may remember him from such films as The Boatjacking of Supership '79 and Good-Time Slim, Uncle Doobie, and the Great 'Frisco Freak-Out. Oh wait that's Troy McClure. Who is this guy again?

    IMDB really isn't much help on that either...
    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0818331/

    Not even a picture.

    As to a comedian playing a scientist? Why not. I forget which director and DVD it was, but during the director commentary he noted he preferred using comedic actors to serious actors (even for serious roles) since they had a better acting range in his experience.

    I just put his name into google and searched for images and a small grainy B&W pic of a some guy (I don't think it's Ronnie) and a pic of a building come up....hmmmm.....according to TV.com, he's "L.A.'s best-kept comedy secret". IMO, he must not only be the best kept comedy secret in L.A., but in the U.S. as a whole. *sheesh* I guess after this movie his exposure might increase to the point where he has at least one pic of him on-line.

    Awe. Some.

    The guy who played "Phil" in the Happy Days episode "Who Gives a Hootenanny". Best. TV. Character. Ever.

    This movie just got so much cooler.





    I have no idea what I'm talking about. :p
