    He's an Aussie? That explains a lot, including his dental issues :)

    He's in the scene where Hunter is having a flashback to when he's younger and in a club. When he goes into the bathroom, Flea's there, and they snort some coke off of Flea's hand, and permanently mentally scar a businessman.
     
  6. THAT'S HIM????????

    WOW!


    (didn't they snort it off of Hunter's sleeve though?)

    Actually they lick acid off Hunters red woolen shirt. The real Hunter is also in a scene right before that.

    Geez, cut a guy a break! I haven't even seen the movie in three years. I was lucky enough to catch it in the theaters for the week it was actaully playing here in CT. Flea's role in The Big Lebowski was far superior anyways.
     
  11. Congrats to Flea! 40 years and counting...
