Before he scored four Emmy awards playing a prosecutor on “Night Court,” John Larroquette was paid in pot for voiceover work on a classic horror movie.
After years of internet speculation, Larroquette confirmed he hit a high note from what he assumed to be gig work for a friend in the ’70s.
“Totally true,” Larroquette told “Parade” when asked about the long-standing rumor director Tobe Hooper compensated John with weed for narrating the prologue to “Texas Chainsaw Massacre.”
“He gave me some marijuana or a matchbox or whatever you called it in those days,” he said. “I walked out of the [recording] studio and patted him on the back side and said, ‘Good luck to you!’”
