😱 “Thank you, awesome Gotham crew!
Late last night, Ben McKenzie and I were sitting in an old Ford Bronco- decked out Mad Max style - for some driving through a post-apocalyptic Gotham. Ben was mid-joke about owning 27 Long John Silver franchises in the mid-west before an e-coli outbreak ruined him financially. Then we heard yelling- it was Bob Roseman, my stunt double, and ***, our awesome security guy, and Adrienne Enderle crew member extraordinaire- A fire had started in the undercarriage of the car and was spreading quickly- They yanked open the door and tore us out while Jon Dowdy, our FX guy, got on it with a fire extinguisher-
We are great- it's all fine- because of them. To be honest, this fire was potentially really gnarly. A lot of leaking fluids and an old rusty gas tank. Bob saw it so fast, *** responded so quickly- in a second, we were out- in two, Jon hit it with the fire extinguisher.
I have to add that we were just hanging out mid-scene- tweaking was going down on lights, set stuff- everyone could have been in relax mode (I was) or wandering off to craft services. My point is:
Great, hard-working crews stay on point. Stunt people DON'T JUST DO STUNTS, (Norm Douglass- you're awesome) they watch your back and keep you safe- at all times- It would be easy to get complacent on a set like Gotham, but *** always has a 360 degree view of EVERYTHING- and Adrienne- well, we love you in general- but I'm not surprised that you run towards a fire when the general instinct is to run away. Jon, we love you and you're always at the ready. Crack crew on Gotham. “ #gotham #benmckenzie #jimgordon #harveybullock
