LIVE NOW: The Calling Hours Horror Podcast Vol. III Ep. 24: CAROLINA FEAR FEST COVERAGE: Actor Ron Fazio of The Toxic Avenger II and III


On this episode we continue our coverage of Carolina Fear Fest 2023 as we will have on former NFL Player and Actor Ron Fazio! After a short lived NFL career with the Dallas Cowboys (1985) and the Philadelphia Eagles (1986, 1987), he auditioned for the Toxic Avenger Part 2. Since the Troma team already signed John Altamura as Toxie, he got the role but they asked him to be the back-up Toxic Avenger to fill in distant shots and do some stunts, essentially to be the 2nd string Toxie. After about 3-4 weeks of filming, John Altamura left the set of Toxic Avenger and the rest was history. I will be asking him about his time in the NFL, what the experience has been like playing and being known as one of the most popular characters in cult film and Troma history, what he is looking forward to the most by appearing at the Carolina Fear Fest this year, the oddest things he has been asked to sign at conventions and more!
