I don’t know if Brian Wilson had an extra role in the movie 8mm or what, because he sure acts like he’s getting residual checks. Every time he has a chance to bring up the movie in an interview he’s done so, and he seems to be making it his personal mission to ensure everybody checks out the 1999 Nicolas Cage film.
In late August, the crazy closer stunned Chris Rose in an interview on the Cheap Seats when he had an S&M gimp-looking masked man walk through the background as they were talking. The Pulp Fiction-looking gimp is actually a character from 8mm called the Machine, who’s a masked pornstar. A few days later, Wilson broke out a mask from his back pocket during a bizarre interview with Jim Rome (must-see if you haven’t checked it out).
And in case you missed it, Brian Wilson broke out another reference to “The Machine” during an NLCS celebratory interview with FOX reporter Chris Rose once again:
That is one wacky dude. Let’s just hope the Rangers win so we don’t have to worry about another appearance from the Gimp err, the Machine.
And if you want to see the video where the Machine first appears, check it out at the 0:43 mark:
