June (2015)—“Dave Anderson”
Casper Van Dien: June was a blast to film. It was in Louisiana, and I took it more or less because I’d just directed Victoria Pratt on a movie, and she told me that the actor they had in mind fell through and that she had talked to the director [L. Gustavo Cooper] about me, and so she’s like, “Hey, why don’t you approach him,” and she just handed me the phone. And the next thing I know, I’m talking to this guy and he’s telling me about this movie and I’m looking at her, she’s just shrugging her shoulders, and that’s how I got it—I got put on the spot. So I said, “Hey, great, send me the script.” He sent me the script, I liked it, and thought it’d be fun to go shoot.
And I get down there—I had a blast. But the coolest thing about this whole movie was at the end of the film I looked around and I saw somebody had a “Death From Above” [From Starship Troopers.] tattoo on their arm. And I’m like, “What’s that?” He says, “Ah, you saw it—you saw one.” Everybody had done it. Everybody had done a “Death From Above” on their arm, from Starship Troopers, and our crew picture was everybody doing “Death From Above.” We had like 90-something people with a “Death From Above” tattoo on their arm. And those that didn’t have tattoos on their arms had it on their chest or something like that. It was really wild. It’s the first time that’s happened for me. But like, over 90 people with a “Death From Above” tattoo. So that was amazing. Absolutely amazing and wild.
