Bill Allen, star of stage and screen, most famous for his role as small-town BMXer done good Cru Jones in the movie Rad, turns 50 this week.
Whatever your thoughts on the cult classic, you can’t deny the iconic status of Cru Jones in the BMX community. Love him or hate him, everyone knows who Cru Jones is and the man who played him, Bill Allen.
And, in some kind of cosmic convergence, I also learned today that McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish is also enjoying it’s 50th birthday this year.
Who’s to say….but I always seem to jones for a Filet-O-Fish or a viewing of Rad at the strangest times.
Like the middle of the night.
Maybe that explains their enduring popularity.
You just never know when the craving will strike you.
But when it does, whether it’s the sandwich or the movie, nothing else will do.
