Hey, Burn Notice! How about casting John Saxon as Sam Axe’s father?
So, I was watching Enter the Dragon the other day. I own it on DVD, but it happened to be on TV, and I was working on something…it was a good opportunity.
I was absolutely struck this time (no, not with a nunchuk) with how much Bruce Campbell’s Sam Axe (on Burn Notice) reminds me of John Saxon’s Roper. In particular, watch the scene where he is manipulating some betting.
Saxon (born in 1935) is still working (at least, he has a 2011 movie). Bruce Campbell was born in 1958…that would make the ages work well….that’s not always necessary, but it’s nice.
It would even be fun for Saxon to do something with the Chuck Finlay character…working together on a scam, for example.
Just a suggestion… 🙂
