But only one is a Facebook friend today: Christopher Atkins
West Hollywood, June 1994
In the spring of 1994, our 20-year old ex-juvenile delinquent friend Infinite Chazz began dating Kris, a 19-year old baby-faced ginger boy who had been in Los Angeles less than a year, but had already been in some movies and tv shows.
You might know him as Kristoffer Winters, who played the Zilbor in Dude, Where's My Car (2000) and Clayton Gallagher in Shameless (2011-2012), and who is reputedly the boyfriend of Jeremy Renner.
Renner could do worse -- Kristoffer won the "biggest penis" prize at one of our parties.
Not much of a physique, but...to his ankles!
Kris had just landed his first starring role, in what turned out to be a very bad Smokey and the Bandits rip-off called Smoke n Lightnin, about two auto mechanics named, naturally, Smoke and Lightnin (no g), who get involved in a caper involving car chases and girls.
"It's not exactly King Lear," he admitted, "But it could lead to bigger things. And you'll never guess who my costar is -- Christopher Atkins! I had such a crush on him when I was a kid!"
We all had a crush on Christopher Atkins when he played a boy growing up on a desert island in The Blue Lagoon (1980) -- a thoroughly heterosexist movie famous for several nude frontal shots of the tanned young actor.
