Gary Burghoff

  1. Joe Pesci, Lethal Weapon 2, 1989. As if Mel Gibson and Danny Glover weren’t already side-kicking each other, director Richard Donnert ordered an extra sidekick. Enter: a hyperkinetic and peroxided ex-Mob accountant called Leo Getz. Fully equipped his own catchphrase: “Okay-okay-okay!” He was chosen from Danny De Vito, M*A*S*H’s Radar Gary Burghoff, Joe Pantoliano (shooting The Last of the Finest)… and, unforttunately, the more annoying than engaging Pesci, who polluted the next three chapters, getting $1m for #4 in 1998.
